  • The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency
    (NDLEA) on Saturday called on the Nigerian
    Association of Patent and Proprietary Medicine
    Dealers (NAPPEMD) to collaborate with it in the
    fight against drug abuse.
    The NDLEA Commander in Edo, Mr Buba
    Wakawa, made the call at a seminar organised
    for NAPPEMD in Auchi, Etsako West Local
    Government Area of Edo.
    The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that
    the seminar was part of the activities marking
    the 2017 International Day Against Drug Abuse
    and Illicit Trafficking.
    Its theme is: “Listen First – Listening to Children
    and Youth Is the First Step to Help Them Grow
    Healthy and Safe.’’
    According UN publication, by resolution 42/112
    of Dec.7, 1987, the General Assembly decided to
    observe every June 26 as the International Day
    against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking.
    UN said, “It is an expression of its determination
    to strengthen action and cooperation to achieve
    the goal of an international society free of drug
    abuse.
    “The day is supported each year by individuals,
    communities and various organisations all over
    the world, this global observance aims to raise
    awareness of the major problem that illicit drugs
    represent to society.”
    Wakawa said that the workshop was aimed at
    promoting synergy, cooperation and
    collaboration between the NDLEA and NAPPMED
    in fighting the “tragic monster, drug abuse’’.
    “The workshop is timely and relevant in view of
    the trends in drug trafficking and drug abuse,
    not only in our country, but globally.
    “A NAPPMED member, as a businessman, is
    busy in his shop and may not be aware of the
    updated list of drugs newly added to the
    controlled list.
    “This workshop provides avenue to get you
    informed and reposition you as critical
    stakeholders in the fight against drug abuse,” he
    said.
    Wakawa said that drugs were substances, other
    than food which when taken, have the power to
    affect the psychology, mental and physical
    conditions of the human body.
    He said that illicit drugs, which were banned or
    controlled, have the power to enslave the user
    until he becomes an addict.
    The NDLEA commander disclosed that between
    2016 and 2017, the command recorded a
    seizure of 836.35kg psychotropic substance
    such as Tramadol, Diazepam Rophynol and
    Benzhexol.
    “Our focus is on the control of psychotropic
    substance which records show is on the
    increase in the state.
    Between June 2015 to June 2016, the NDLEA
    Edo Command had seizure of only 40 grammes
    of psychotropic substance.
    “However, between June 2016 and June 2017,
    the command has a total seizure of 836.35kg of
    psychotropic substance with a breakdown of
    Tramadol- 537.68kg, Diazepam- 281.42kg,
    Rophynol- 6.25kg and Benzhexol- 11kg.
    “This upsurge is frightening and alarming,
    hence, the need for the workshop,” Wakawa
    said.
    He urged members of NAPPEMD to shun greed
    and deal in genuine over-the-counter drugs,
    rather than indulging in the sales of controlled
    and banned drugs.
    “We are ready to partner only with those
    involved in genuine business.
    “We appeal to you to shun dispensing these
    illicit drugs to save our society from criminal
    vices associated with drug abuse.
    “This gathering is no doubt a needful
    commitment toward finding a lasting remedy for
    our present and upcoming generations on
    matters of drug abuse,” he said.
