Anti-drug war: Senate Committee commends Marwa, backs NDLEA’s offensives against cartels



By Naomisophyblog

The Public Accounts Committee of the Senate has commended the Chairman/Chief Executive of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA, Brig. Gen. Mohamed Buba Marwa (Retd), CON, OFR, for providing good leadership for the anti-narcotics Agency in its onslaught against drug abuse and illicit drug trafficking in Nigeria.

Chairman of the Committee, Senator Mathew Urhoghide who gave the commendation on Tuesday 25th October during the Public Hearing on Service Wide Vote at the Senate Complex Abuja, said Marwa’s leadership at NDLEA has changed the country’s drug war narrative both locally and internationally.

While bemoaning the past when the Agency lost its glory, the Senate Committee Chairman said it is now daily visible and glaring to all Nigerians that the NDLEA is not only barking but equally biting deep drug barons and dealers that have for years remained invisible and untouchable. He expressed the Committee’s readiness to continue to support Marwa and the Agency to succeed in making Nigeria a drug free country.

He added that while the Committee continues to push for support for Marwa’s tireless efforts against drug abuse and trafficking of illicit substances, the NDLEA boss should always feel free to approach members on any support that will make the Agency better.
