The Ministry of Youth Empowerment and Creative Economy in Anambra State has held a one-day sensitization/awareness creation workshop in Anambra East Local Government Area to educate youngsters in the area about the hazards of drug misuse.
Anambra East Local Government Headquarters in Otuocha hosted the event, which drew youths from all around the state.
Professor Theresa Obiekezie, the state Commissioner for Youth Empowerment and Creative Economy, addressed the youths, emphasizing that drug abuse poses a significant risk to one's biological, psychological, social, and economic well-being, and urging them to avoid hard drugs in order to save their future.
The Commissioner expressed regret for the rise in the abuse of methamphetamine, also known as "Mkpulu Mmiri," in today's society, noting that it has killed many young people, resulted in vandalism of public property, and sparked various degrees of violence, among other things, and explained that the workshop was part of Governor Willie Obiano's efforts to combat crime and criminality in the state.
