Alhaji Salamu Amadu, the National Zongo Youth Ambassador for Peace and Development, and the concerned youth from Nima and Mamobi in the Ayawaso North and East Municipalities have launched the Say No To Drugs campaign to combat drug addiction among the youth and guide them towards a drug-free life.
Abdul Fatahu Alhassan, the organizer of the campaign, emphasized that their objective is to ensure that the youth in Zongo communities across the country steer clear of drugs in order to achieve their life goals.
“Our campaign aims to inspire the youth to reject drugs and pursue their dreams and aspirations,” said the organiser of the campaign, Abdul Fatahu Alhassan who hopes to take the campaign across Zongo communities in the country.
Ambassador Alhaji Salamu Amadu who is also the President and Founder of the Afro-Arab Group of Companies, expressed concern about the heightened abuse of drugs in Zongo communities and pledged to support addicts with entrepreneurial skills if they agree to be rehabilitated.
“It saddens me to witness our brothers and sisters in such circumstances. I urge stakeholders to support this commendable initiative led by the Mayor of Nima. I believe that, through a gradual process, our message will resonate with our brothers and sisters, encouraging them to break free from drug addiction and become valuable contributors to our nation,” said Ambassador Alhaji Salamu Amadu.
“In Shaa Allah, the Afro Arab Group is ready to support those who are committed to rehabilitation and provide them with startup capital for their businesses. We also welcome individuals who seek to develop entrepreneurial skills. However, the most crucial step is making a firm decision to distance oneself from drugs,” he added.
Eze Dr. Chukwudi Ihenetu, the Nigerian King of the Igbo Community in Ghana, who attended the event as a guest also pledged to cover the cost of rehabilitation for all those who are prepared to renounce drugs.
