In politics, There are incidences of election results being overturned in favor of the highest bidder on the one hand while elected officials are not able to perform maximally because of the arm-twisting of sponsors or godfatherism.

We need to combat the menace of drug abuse and illicit trafficking because it is not only insidiously destroying our youths and future leaders but is threatening instability that undermines development, peace, and human rights.

Consequently, our beloved Governor, who is concerned with the health and wellbeing of Deltans, decided to chest out and tackle this menace frontally and holistically by championing this campaign for a stronger and more secured Delta State’’ Eghove said, as she thanked the governor for backing the campaign.

In the 10 local governments visited, Eghove inaugurated drug abuse ambassadors drawn from all wards across the state.
