The Household of Love Church has announced the church is ready to use its podium to address the high rate of drug abuse in Nigeria, especially among the youth

Rev Yinka Yusuf, The General Overseer, Household of Love Church has reiterated his commitment towards the Silec initiative operation, a scheme set up to rescue Nigerian youths from drug abuse

Sunny Irakpo said the hosting of the Silec initiative’s campaign against drug abuse in Nigeria which is scheduled to hold July 24 is a result of the need for religious leaders to use their platform to address the high rate of drug abuse in the country.

While commending the general overseer, Irakpo reaffirmed the commitment of the initiative in tackling drug abuse, saying his team would continue to do their best in helping to fix Nigeria by fighting “this enemy crippling the economic potentials in our youths.”

In his remark, the general overseer lauded the initiative saying, “this illicit acts practiced by youths is painful.”He said the outright ban of codeine and other abused drugs is not the best, adding that educating Nigerians on the dangers is the best preventive approach, as the ban will shift attention to other drug experimentation, which might lead to increase in crime rate in the country, if not properly managed and professionally handled.

The event will have in attendance prominent Nigerians like Sen. Gbenga Ashafa representing Lagos east senatorial district, Dr Dele Momodu Publisher, Chairman ovation media group, Dr Jide Idris Commissioner for Health Lagos, Col. Muhammad Mustapha Abdullai, Chairman/CEO NDLEA, Dayo Israel and host of others including artistes like Seyilaw, Mayor, Mc Aboki, Sweetmouth, koody spice, Bornbless, Igos Prince of Wazobia fm, Solo Urete, among others.
