 Nasarawa earmarks N300,000 monthly for NDLEA

The Governor of Nasarawa State, Umaru Tanko Al- Makura has expressed support for the operations of the National Drug Law Enforce­ment Agency (NDLEA) in order to boost the fight against illicit drugs which is gradually gaining ground among some youths in the state.
The governor who paid an un­scheduled visit to the agency at the weekend said the reason for his visit was to assess its state of facilities with a view to making some interventions where the need arises.
He promised to give the com­mand a monthly stipend of three hundred thousand naira to boost its operations and cater for some critical needs.
Al-Makura’s visit to the NDLEA headquarters in Lafia became a source of relief to some of the inmates as he promised to make a donation of fifty mat­tresses to the command.
The governor stated that the policy of his administration which is about inclusive gover­nance, was intended to give the necessary assistance to all the agencies of government operat­ing in the state for their smooth operation as development part­ners.
It would be recalled that the NDLEA was among the security agencies in the state that ben­efitted from the governor’s ges­ture last year when he donated a 36-setter bus to be used for matters that demands prompt action.
