While delivering his lecture, Sir Newton applauded the NAUS Director of Contact and Mobilization, Comr. Abioye Sanjo for coming up with such a program that will serve as an eye-opener to Nigerian students. He discussed extensively, the causes, effects, and solutions to drug abuse.
In his lecture, Sir Newton mentioned the types of Drug abuse we have that students do not even take cognizance of.
“The use of hard-drugs is what people emphasize most times when talking about drug abuse neglecting the fact that Self-medication and Use of overdose are also very deadly and hazardous to the nation at large.”
“Ignorant, poor parental upbringing, and influence of peer pressure have lured many students into this social vice(drug-abuse), the society is not even helping the situation again.”
“Fellow Nigerian Students, my best advice for you is to abstain from this vice as it causes a lot of havoc on the abuser, the family, and even the society”
Sir Newton also urged the comrades to lead by example by dressing moderately at all times reiterating the fact that ‘You will be addressed according to your dressing’. He further said that as comrades, their dressing should speak good of them because they are the representatives of the students.
Also at the event were the Commissioner of Police, Ekiti State, NDLEA Representatives, Human Right Activists, Ekiti State University Students’ Union President, University of Ibadan Students’ Union President, Pioneer NAUS President, NAUS National Vice President, and many other important dignitaries.
