After chanting the lines to the singer’s hit songs such as ‘Hello Doctor’, ‘Gbana Na Bastard’, etc, the singer wrapped up with the popular, hard-hitting, ‘Onye Ara’. As if pulled by the strings of the song, students of the school who were already on their feet, mobbed the singer on the stage and shouted along to the popular song!
As part of the activities, students were trained by experts and professionals in drug-related fields such as psychiatrists, psychologists and members of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA). It was a thorough experience for the students.
