Resists Temptation from drug Barons, NDLEA Boss Charges New Officers

The Chairman/Chief Executive Officer of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, Brig. Gen. Mohamed Buba Marwa (Retd) has charged 2,000 newly trained officers of the anti-narcotics body to resist every temptation from drug barons that will make them compromise their duties and responsibilities.

Marwa said this during the passing out parade of the new officers at the NDLEA Academy, Jos, Plateau State on Friday.

This was derived from a statement released on Friday by Femi Babafemi the Director, Media and Advocacy, NDLEA Headquarters, Abuja,

According to the statement, the NDLEA boss reminded the new officers that they were coming into the Agency at a time when the institution is being overhauled to make it more effective and efficient, and as such their months of training at the Academy must count through impactful contributions to its goal of ridding Nigeria of drug abuse and illicit drug trafficking.

“You are coming into the Agency at an auspicious time when the management has pushed the reset button and commenced the overhaul of the old system and its encumbrances. Your employment coincides with a time we are putting in place all that is necessary to foster the enabling work environment that makes a career in the NDLEA gratifying.

“Having been given the necessary training, we expect you to make your presence count with impact contributions to the achievement of the Agency’s objectives in its campaign against abuse and trafficking of illicit substances. Qualities such as loyalty, discipline and diligence would help you to have a fulfilling career in a paramilitary organisation such as NDLEA. Marwa said.

“Let me also bring to your awareness how important you are now to society. Only very few occupations afford an individual the opportunity of direct, meaningful impact on society’s wellbeing. You are part of a community of custodians who are assigned the responsibility of safeguarding society’s sanity and safety against the corrosion of illicit substances. And today, I charge you thus: do not disappoint the Agency, and the society at large, and more importantly, do not disappoint yourselves.”

The NDLEA CEO urged the new officers and their senior compatriots to remain upright and patriotic always, stating that work is currently on to put in place a welfare package that will shield officers from circumstances or conditions that may predispose them to compromise their duties and responsibilities.

Conclusively, NDLEA boss appreciate His Excellency, President Muhammadu Buhari, GCFR, President and Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces, whose political will has support and encourage the Agency.
