Hon Abdul-Sobur, who spoke at the 7th Annual Constituency Stakeholders’ Meeting in his Constituency, warned that this menace must be urgently checked to prevent its devastating effects on the growth and progress of the country.
“At the Lagos State House of Assembly, the leadership and members of the House have always taken matters affecting residents and especially the youths very passionately.
“The House has continued to be proactive in the consideration of viable laws and policies that would enhance youth potentials and development.
“Some of the recent laws that are passed attest to government’s efforts on this matter and these include the law to amend the Lagos State Sports Commission law of 2015 to promote youth and sports development in Lagos and for connected purposes.
“The law will ensure that youths are provided with great opportunities not only in the area of recreation but where they can nurture, explore and utilise their potentials in sporting activities to become professional sportsmen and women.
“While the passage of the Lagos Neighbourhood Safety Corps is aimed at ensuring the safety of all in our neighbourhood, the prevalence of drug abuse amongst adults and youths, if not effectively addressed and curbed, will jeopardise the entire efforts of the House in the
Guests, who spoke at the event, commended the Hon. Abdul-Sobur for the various projects he had attracted to the constituency.
