Say No To Drug Addiction Youth Conference Records Massive Success (Pix)

The 5th edition of the 'Say No To Drug Addiction  Youth Conference' that was held on Thursday June 20, 2019 recorded massive success. 

The yearly youth oriented conference with a major aim of discouraging youths from drug abuse took place at Early Life Secondary  School Hall, 3rd Avenue, Festac Lagos. 

Convener of the conference Ambassador Chibuzo Mbaso Patrick who pulled other society bigwigs to the event said, "Drug addiction is a choice, it is not a disease, before you stuck that needle, inhale those substances,  popped those pills in your mouth,  you didn't have an addiction,  you created a habit that became habitual but we are here to help you."

"While agreeing that growing criminality is a product of our broken social system, BUZOPAT as she is fondly called said, "In the course of this NGO struggle that is a divine calling for me, I have met and seen youths who are bad not because they want to be bad but, because no one showed them the right way."

"Our children may be good but they must mix with the irresponsible and ignored ones, let's try and reorientate as much as we can. Drug abuse is bad, is dangerous, is destructive, is dilapitating the society."

"Some parents can't talk to their children anymore, some teachers are afraid to talk to students now, Government cannot even work without your efforts, it's only selfless NGO's like mine that can bridge these gaps. So, I want to thank all that have been supporting us from years back and again I'm calling on all for your support even as we look forward to the next edition."
