Codeine abuse: Primate Ayodele tells FG what to do

Like this?

Primate Babatunde Ayodele, founder and head of INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, Oke Afa, Lagos, has called on the federal government to employ psychologist to proffer lasting solutions to the abuse of hard drugs.

He stated this while featuring on Channels TV on Sunday, where he commended the Federal Government for its recent ban on local production and importation of codeine addictive cough syrup.

The cleric noted that youths addicted to hard drugs do not realise the harm caused by the drugs.

“The federal government has done a good thing by taking steps to fight hard drugs, unfortunately the people who take these drugs do not realise they are destroying themselves.

“It takes so many steps to fight hard drugs, you begin by questioning why young people are taking hard drugs.

“What is happening to young people out there, Are they frustrated? Is it an attempt to escape from reality?

“The federal government should hire psychologists to find out why hard drug becomes best seller in some parts of the country at this time.

“While we commend the government, they should go beyond that and find out the main reason for taking hard drugs.

“Is it a result of unemployment, Is it attempt to escape reality or are they confused by the confusion in the country?” Ayodele wondered.
