Rep proposes compulsory dr*g tests for policemen, soldiers, students, politicians


Francis Ottah Agbo, the House Committee on Narcotic Dr*gs chairman, says he will sponsor a bill that will allow the National Dr*g to carry out compulsory and routine dr*g tests on security agents, students, and politicians.

Politicians seeking political offices will undergo the test too.

In a statement a posted on Facebook, Mr Agbo asserted that the routine dr*g  checks will cleanse the system. “I’m proposing a bill to empower the NDLEA to carry out a mandatory and routine dr*g test on politicians seeking public offices, top public servants, military and paramilitary officers and men, and for youths seeking admission into higher institutions. This will check excesses, m*dness in the country, and sanitise the system,” the statement said.

Mr Agbo’s proposed bill sets out to screen all serving and intending personnel in the service delivery sector and candidates seeking admissions into universities to mandatory checks on dr*gs.

He further stated that certain misconducts by serving politicians and most crimes committed in society result from substance abuse.

He reasoned that regular dr*g screenings by NDLEA would help.
