The National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control has sought for Corps Members' support to fight drug abuse in the country especially at the grassroot.

It said plans are in top gear to maximise their skills to stem the tide of sub-standard medicines and processed foods.

NAFDAC Director-General, Prof. Mojisola Adeyeye stated this today while on a courtesy visit to NYSC Director-General, Brigadier General Shuaibu Ibrahim in his office.

She commended the invaluable contributions of Corps Members to NAFDAC activities but added that there is need for more assistance at the Local Government level because of the increasing rate of drug abuse in the remote areas
"We need more army to fight fake and counterfeit drugs at the Local Government level and NYSC is a great channel for the country", She said.

Adeyeye, who described Corps Members as reservoir of knowledge and resources added that the agency has embarked on National Drug Officers abuse programme where youths are sent to secondary schools across the country to teach students on the dangers of drug abuse.

The Director-General, Brigadier General Shuaibu Ibrahim in his response commended NAFDAC for its war against drug abuse in the country.

He said one of his policy thrust is to maximize the potentials of Corps Members for optimal performance adding that they are passionate about contributing their quota to the development of the country.
