The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) has lately come out to refute reports that it hired music sensation Afeez Adeshina Fashola, also known as Naira Marley, as an ambassador.
In a statement made on Saturday, Femi Babafemi, the Director of Media and Advocacy of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA), addressed the situation.
The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) has announced a significant meeting with renowned music vocalist Naira Marley. The purpose of this collaboration, he says, is to encourage the music star to use his amazing talent to keep young people from slipping into the trap of substance abuse.
In a surprising turn of events, the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) has addressed to recent concerns over the nomination of popular musician Naira Marley as its ambassador. The agency has stated unequivocally that no such appointment was ever made, effectively putting an end to the circulating accusations.
A clarification was thought necessary in order to clarify the ongoing misunderstanding about the purpose of the visit, particularly on various internet forums. According to social media sources, the well-known British-Nigerian musician has been named an ambassador for the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA).
Surprisingly, it has been discovered that certain individuals’ claims concerning the Agency’s captioning and sharing of images and videos are false and inaccurate. The Agency has explicitly denied these individuals’ claims that the Agency proposed an appointment during the visit. The photographs from the visit, as well as a brief video with Naira Marley’s advocacy message to his followers, were reportedly appropriately tagged and disseminated by the Agency, with no indication of an appointment.
The Agency has decided to enlist the help of Naira Marley, a well-known celebrity with over seven million followers, in order to achieve a balance between attempts to reduce drug supply and drug demand. This decision was made in response to the growing number of drug users in Nigeria, a group that is believed to account for half of all drug users in the country. The Agency believes that Naira Marley’s huge platform will allow him to transmit messages that discourage substance use. This campaign aims to prevent the dangerous trend of promoting and glorifying drug use, which has terrible consequences and poses a significant risk to the millions of Nigerian adolescents who may be misled by such information.
Naira Marley, the renowned artist, took command on Thursday, August 17, 2023, when he and his team made a visit to the National Headquarters of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) in Abuja. Their mission was to highlight Naira Marley’s unwavering dedication to actively participate in the nation’s fight against drug abuse.
