Mixed Reactions Trail Naira Marley, NDLEA Collaboration

Following Singer Azeez Adeshina Fashola best known as Naira Marley’s visit to the Chairman, National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, Brigadier General Buba Marwa and his call to Nigerian youths to shun drug abuse on Thursday, netizens have since taken to social media to share their thoughts.

In a video obtained by our correspondent, the “Soapy” famous for the promotion of multiple social vices in his songs, spoke on the dangers of drug abuse, urging youths to steer clear this path.

“It’s your boy Naira Marley, I’ll like to urge my fans – Marlians and all Nigerian youths to stop doing drugs because it’s t good for your well-being. Stop substance abuse of any form; I’ve keyed into this campaign to support the NDLEA to stop drugs on the streets. It’s not good, it makes you go back to doing crime,” Naira Marley said.

Reacting to the singer’s statement, Olorogun Ernest said, “Nigeria is indeed a very confusing & complicated Nation. How can Naira Marley, who consistently promotes the use of drugs and other immoral substances, be visiting NDLEA to pledge support for the fight against the use of drugs. Perhaps NDLEA can just go ahead and make him an ambassador. Strange & crazy Nation!

Another user, Ekene00621679 said, “This is someone who had repeatedly smoked on camera…. where are we going as a country?

NvestorHaywhy said, “This is forbidden ‘nd shouldn’t be allowed. Naira is known as a gangster who promotes the use of harmful drugs. Making him d ambassador, clearly shows they are on the move to legalise drugs and immoral acts in society. I hope the gov. Pls see to this and put things in order.

Jebskine said, “What kind of message are you people at NDLEA passing out to the youths??? This is so so Low I never expected this from our former Governor Military Administrator in Lagos Col. Buba Marwa seriously the Hunter and the Hunted dining together!”

VENT_NG wrote, “The same person that promote ganja& substance taking in almost all his songs? Hope You’re not making a “dealer” ur ambassador?Thisactually subtle way to legitimate his dealings. He’ll frame this picture and show all his customers that “Ati settle e lati Abuja. E ma gbo’ja lo”

Supporting, badmusebony1 said, “So many small minds . This is a very good move it will be difficult for naira to smoke openly now and encouraging young folks

Nkyrian Kyrian said, “That’s good, honestly many young people, especially girls are getting into drugs and this is leading them to madness. I have a video on tiktok where very young girls are smoking, with bottles of beer and spirits in front of them. This is so bad. Let our musicians preach this and let those of them that engage in this be arrested and prosecuted, nobody is above the law

King_daray giving NDLEA kudos said, “This is good, this campaign must be made widespread and rendered in local languages including pidgin English. Many young lives are wasting away because of harmful drugs. The authority also needs to partner with other relevant bodies and agencies to rehabilitate these addicts and help them manage the recovery process, or else they relapse. The manufacturers of drugs and harmful substances must be checked strictly. Also, some of these guys don’t have jobs, skills or education. It goes beyond advocacy but this is a good starting point. Well done NDLEA and Marley.
