Through initiatives to combat youth drug usage, Lagos State Governor Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu has reaffirmed his administration's commitment to ensuring a peaceful society.

The governor revealed this, according to a statement on Wednesday, at the fourth state community empowerment and sensitization event held at the Lagos House in Ikeja.

Sanwo-Olu, who was represented by Mrs. Folasade Jaji, Secretary to the State Government, praised the Office of the First Lady for its anti-drug addiction programs and ongoing activism.
“It is a well-established fact that family is the bedrock of any society, and a stable family unit raises strong men and women capable of leading to success. The government must continue to engage the family to achieve such stability

“Since the inception of our administration, the First Lady has been at the forefront of the fight against this form of abuse and I commend her for initiating programmes and projects which have complemented the efforts of our administration towards building a stable society, which is key to this administration’s policy.”
The wife of the Lagos State Governor, Dr Ibijoke Sanwo-Olu, urged stakeholders in the community to develop a greater understanding of the consequences of drug abuse.
