Hauz of Elnathan, NDLEA Organised Beauty/Intellectual contest to Promote Campaign Against Drug Abuse

A youths-led Non-Governmental Organization, Hauz of Elnathan Initiative (HEI) under the supervision of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) has organised a beauty pageant titled “Nigeria Face of Hope (NFH)” to promote the campaign against drug and substance abuse among Nigerian youths and teenagers.

The event, which held on November 2, 2019, at Manuex Place Event Center in Warri, Delta State, had several young contestants among whom Mr. Eze Tochi Isaac and Miss Rejoice Onyemachi emerged as Mr and Miss NFH respectively. The winners were immediately crowned as the Ambassadors of Hauz of Elnathan Initiative to campaign against and disabuse the mind of youths from drug abuse in Nigeria and beyond.

The Area Commander, NDLEA, Warri Area Command, Danjuma Gambo Omolowo, CSN in his speech during the event, lamented the rise of substance abuse among youths. He said drug abuse and possession of illegal drugs are punishable by the law and admonished parents to mount proper watch over their children and also educate them on the dangers of drug abuse. He commended the organizers of the event, adding that the continuous sensitization of the general public will go along way in reducing the involvement of youths in the abuse of hard drugs


Also the Projects Administrator of the HEI, Mr. Enaruke Peter said that drug and substance abuse by youths has destroyed a lot of promising destinies. He noted that many of the youths and teenagers who indulge in the abuse of hard drugs do not understand the dangers of doing so, hence, Hauz of Elnathan Initiative was birthed to raise awareness and sensitize the public with special focus on youths, students and teenagers on the dangers of drug abuse and other related vices. Enaruke stated that the NGO is determined to undertake developmental and creative programs to create the needed awareness on drug abuse. He appreciated all partners and sponsors of the event for their sacrifices geared towards reducing and eradicating the inappropriate use of hard drugs in the society.
