The Lagos Command of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA), has appointed the State Chairman of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW), Alhaji Musiliu Akinsanya, a.ka MC Oluomo as their Ambassador of War Against Drug Abuse in the State (WADA).
The appointment was announced when the NDLEA team led by the Lagos State Commander, Calys Alumona, visited Mc-Oluomo to sensitize people to desist from drugs and other harmful substances.
The team used the opportunity to also enlighten the union members of the negative effects of hard drugs and how harmful they can be to their bodies and brains.
The NDLEA disclosed that they have carefully monitored the life of the Union chairman and they were surprised to discover that he is a man that doesn’t smoke nor drink alcohol.
He said his team and colleagues were surprised that despite all they have heard about Mc-Oluomo, from those that apparently don’t like him, he is a decent man that does not indulge in substance abuse nor encourage the use.
Commander Alumona urged the union members to emulate their chairman by being decent, stop taking the harmful substances and other dangerous drugs.
Mc-Oluomo in his reply appreciated the team and the NDLEA leadership for their good job towards reducing the usage of harmful substances in our society.
He noted that since his inception as the Lagos State chairman of NURTW, he had done several seminars and programmes towards transforming and improving the behaviors of the union members.
As the chairman, he promised the NDLEA team of his continued efforts towards ensuring the eradication or drastic reduction in the use of drugs amongst his members.
He equally said measures are already in place to discipline any member caught misbehaving or projecting the union in a negative light due to substance abuse.
Oluomo disclosed that the ambassadorial appointment will further spur him to do more towards reducing the usage of substances amongst his members and Lagos State at large.
The highlight of the visit was the presentation of the Ambassadorial plague to the union chairman by the NDLEA Lagos State Commander.
