Popular Singer, Naira Marley Joins NDLEA’s Fight on Illicit Drugs

Naira Marley, a well-known British-Nigerian musician, has urged young people to abstain from drug usage.

He claimed that it is impossible to overstate the negative impacts of substance usage.

The Marlian leader spoke Thursday in Abuja when he paid a visit to Brig. Gen. Mohamed Buba Marwa (ret. ), the head of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA).

He said that he joined the NDLEA’s War Against Drug misuse (WADA) advocacy campaign to help the organization combat drug misuse among the nation’s youth.

Naira Marley said: “I would like to urge my fans, Marlians, and all the Nigerian youths, to stop doing drugs because it is not good for your wellbeing. Let’s all stop substance abuse in any form.

“I have keyed into this campaign [War Against Drug Abuse] to support NDLEA to stop drug [abuse] in the streets. Drug abuse is really not good. It makes you go back to crimes. It does a lot of things to you.”
