Meanwhile, in another news…

Award-winning skit-maker, Emmanuel Chukwuemeka popularly known as Oga Sabinus, has said drug abuse is the major factor derailing the youths today.

He made the comment during a recent interview while calling on government to do all it can to curtail abuse of illicit substances among the young population.

Sabinus, who also revealed that he doesn’t use drugs nor alcohol, recalled an advise his father gave him about the need to always be at alert.

He said; “There is something that has become a hindrance to the youths today, and that is drugs and smoking of substances. All these things have become a problem among our youths for a very long time now, but people seem not to think of it as a problem. It is a very big problem because I have seen a situation where I young vibrant youths start taking things that are beyond them and it derailed them.

Use and abuse of drugs and others substances really affect many of them in the long run. That is why I cannot be a fan of smoking or alcohol. My father always tells me that it’s better to be at alert so that when trouble comes, you will be able to point out the problem, identify it and tackle it because your eyes are very clear.

Also, the government should do everything possible to curtail drug use and abuse because there are still generations to come. If this generation is like this, what are we going to say about the generations after this one?”
