Minister of Interior Begin Testing of Substance Abuse For Immigration Officers & Others Arms Bearing ~ Matters Arising
Today, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, the Minister of Interior virtually flagged off a Substance Abuse Test Exercise tagged, ”The Test Begins With Me” at the Nigeria Immigration Service Headquaters in Abuja and all it’s commands across the country Matters Arising Correspondent gathered

In his address today,he advised all other arms-bearing services in the country to subject their personel to this routine test. According to the Honourable Minister,one major consequence of drug abuse is diminished responsibility and it significantly contribute to wrongful use of firearms by law enforcement agents.

Onike Rahaman report that the Minister lamented the high rates of substance abuse in the country.Available records according to him from a 2018 research conducted by National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) and the Centre for Research and Information on Substance Abuse with technical support from the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) and the European Union show that nearly 15 per cent of Nigerian adults engage in one form of substance abuse or the other.He considered this negative trend as serious enough, considering that the global average is about six per cent.

Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola points from the same report that cannabis is the most widely used drug in Nigeria at 10.5 million people. This is followed by opioids at 4.6 million. Cough syrups (yes, because it contains codeine) is third at 2.3 million.In his analysis, tranquilisers, cocaine and heroin follow at 0.4 million, 0.09 million and 0.08 million respectively.

The figure according to him didn’t include millions of users and abusers of tobacco, alcohol, cola nuts and those sniffing glue, petrol, sewage and urine as inhalants. If we add these figures, it should rise above 50 per cent of the adult population. Ladies and gentlemen, we have a problem in our hand of titanic proportion.

Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up.
The words in your content seem to be running off the screen in Opera.
I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do
with browser compatibility but I thought I’d post to let
you know. The design and style look great though!
Hope you get the issue resolved soon. Thanks
