According to the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA), no drug can improve a student’s academic performance, hence they should refrain from using it.
In an interview with newsmen on Tuesday at the University of Ilorin, Mr. Mohammad Ibrahim, the NDLEA Commander, Kwara Command, provided the warning, particularly to students of the university.
He disputes the assertion made by certain people that hard drugs improve pupils’ performance on any exam.
He stressed that students must resist any pressure that would cause them to consume drugs, noting that the brief perceived feelings from the strong drugs might subsequently do harm to such a student.
“One of the things we’re doing is improving the patrol teams’ capacity to police the state, as well as increasing the number of officers on the road to stop drugs from entering the state.”
“NAFDAC is in charge of managing licit drugs, whereas the NDLEA is focused on dealing with illegal drugs and psychotropic substances, such as heroin, cocaine, and cannabis. These are entirely illegal substances, he continued.
