The Senator representing Bayelsa East in the National Assembly, Ben Murray-Bruce, has decried the alarming state of drug abuse among Nigerian youths.

 

He said the majority of young people were not happy without hard drugs.

Speaking during plenary at the floor of the Senate, Murray-Bruce said drug abuse had eaten deep into Nigerian society, including the homes of the majority of Nigerian lawmakers.

 

“This is a very serious issue and I am sure my colleagues here when they were in school may have had classmates who were on drugs. When I was in high school, a few of my classmates were on drugs.

 

“I urge my colleagues to go home and pay attention to your children. You may be shocked that somebody in your household is on drugs. Always happy, always smiling and you have no idea why that child is smiling because that child is on drugs.”

 

The lawmaker said the issue of drug abuse was extremely serious as those drugs were easily accessible to Nigerian youths, both the poor and rich who relied on it to be happy.
