The Nigerian Military School (NMS) Ex-Boys Association has expressed the willingness of its members to join the ongoing war and advocacy campaigns against the menace of illicit drug trafficking and abuse especially among Nigerian youths.

President of the group, Engr. Femi Ikuponiyi, gave the assurance when he led some leaders of the group on a solidarity visit to the Chairman/CEO of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA), Brig. Gen. Mohammed Buba Marwa (Retd), at the agency’s national headquarters, Abuja.

NDLEA Spokesman, Femi Babafemi, in a statement yesterday said the group said they were on the visit to identify with Marwa’s accomplishment and vision for the NDLEA as an ex-boy and a pride of the ex-boys family.

Ikuponiyi expressed the willingness of ex-boys to join advocacy campaigns to stem and eradicate the menace of use of illicit drugs amongst the Nigerian youths, particularly in areas of intelligence gathering and reportage.

He commended Marwa and described him as a pacesetter and an exemplary ambassador of the NMS ExBA.

In his response, Marwa thanked the NMS Ex-Boys for their visit and offer to support the drug war, stressing that such was an indication that the key message of the War Against Drug Abuse, WADA, launched by President Muhammadu Buhari last June was fast achieving its target of mobilising every citizen to take ownership of the battle against the drug scourge.
