We’ll Stand Up Against Any Move to Legalize Cannabis-Hon Agboh


CHAIRMAN of the House of Representatives Committee on narcotics, Hon Francis Ottah Agbo, has vowed that the committee will vehemently resist any move to legalize cannabis sativa on the floor of the house.


Hon Agbo made the vow in Abuja on Wednesday while reacting to an address delivered by the chairman/chief executive of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA, Brig Gen Buba Marwa, Retd, during the defence of the agency’s 2022 proposed budget allocation.


Hon Agbo pointed out that there is an urgent and compelling need of all well-meaning Nigerians and patriots to support NDLEA’s efforts at ridding the country of the unwholesome and illicit substances, including consumption of same, which is already contributing enormously to the spiraling state of insecurity in the country.


Hon Agbo, who also spoke on the need to overhaul the NDLEA Act, with a view to removing the rather ridiculous fines option for offenders, emphasized that the fight against consumption of illicit substances is one that must be conducted from all fronts.
