President Muhammadu Buhari has lauded the performance of the Brigadier-General Buba Marwa-led National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) in the current crusade to rid the streets of illicit drugs.
The President gave the commendation during the recently concluded National Security Council (NSC) meeting, which he presided over in the Presidential Villa in Abuja.
He has, however, instructed on steps to be taken to boost the performance and capabilities of the agency, in line with its roles in the national campaign against insecurity.
This is coming as the proliferation of illicit drugs had been identified as one of the enhancers of crimes and violent activities in different parts of the country.
Revealing President Buhari’s feeling and plans for the NDLEA, as disclosed by the President himself during the NSC meeting, the National Security Adviser (NSA), Major-General Babagana Monguno, said the plan was part of the plan to use all available resources to defeat the security crisis facing the nation.
