The Vice-Chancellor Delta State University Abraka, Prof. Andy Ogochukwu Egwunyenga and the Executive Director Wisdom Class Organization Dr. Paul Esegbue, fully aware: ● That the world drug problem constitutes a serious challenge to public health and the safety, well being of humanity, including children and young people and their families and communities. ● Bearing in mind that the world drug problem is a common and shared responsibility that should continue to be addressed in a multilateral setting through effective and increased cooperation and that demands an integrated, multidisciplinary, reinforcing, balanced scientific evidence-based and comprehensive approach:
The Delta State University Abraka under the credible Chancellorship of Prof. Andy Ogochukwu Egwenyenga has approved the implementation of the “Drug Education and Rehabilitation Fund Project" in the school.
The Project is in collaboration with the Delta State Orientation Buruea and other Intergovernmental Organizations.
It was conceived to champion drug education and rehabilitation, provide a credible alternative counterbalancing role in shaping a normative culture of safety, moderation, and informed decision-making for young people and adults on licit and illicit drug use.
The idea is to:
1. Raise awareness and stigmatize the gross use of licit and illicit drugs which has become somehow tolerated.
2. Raise funds for drug testing and rehabilitation of victims.
3. Establish a platform for alternative assistance and prevention.
Students are charged to avail themselves at the Flagship taking place on 18th Tuesday May 2021 at the 500Capacity auditorium, Campus 3.
