Chairman/Chief Executive of the NDLEA Ahmadu Giade, has said that online anti-drug abuse/trafficking counselling services are now available to interested members of the public
The Times reports that the agency has been taking steps to address the growing need for anti-drug abuse/trafficking sensitization with a total of 21,634 persons benefitting from NDLEA offline counselling service nationwide between 2010 and 2014.
“Online counselling will complement existing offline counselling platforms across our formations nationwide. We introduced online counselling to provide our services to people, especially youths at the comfort of their homes. Besides, it is easy to access, providing clients greater comfort and convenience. The confidentiality involved also makes whoever is seeking information to be open-minded and bond easily with counsellors. Already, the services can be accessed via email address [email protected] gov.ng and twitter handle @ ndlea_nigeria. Very soon the Facebook account and tollfree phone calls will be activated to further expand our scope of operation,” said Giade.
