    Speaking at the passing-out parade of the newly trained Narcotic Agents and Narcotic Assistants in Katsina yesterday, Marwa reminded the new personnel that they can’t afford to compromise on their work because their efforts will directly impact the safety and well-being of their families, communities, and the country at large.

    He said, “I believe that before you reported to the Academy, you must have read and heard about the good works of NDLEA officers.

    “Today, the door is open for you to contribute your quota. NDLEA has a storied history of dedication and resilience in the face of adversity. We are in a new epoch in which we approach the fight against drug trafficking organizations with an indomitable spirit and determination to break their stranglehold on society.

    “In the renewed war on illicit drugs,  NDLEA is employing the latest techniques, technologies, and intelligence to curb the menace. Hence, I can assure you that you are coming into the agency at a time when the job has become challenging but exciting and gratifying as well.”

    He added: “In the pursuit of the solemn duties of our mandate, it is vital for you to recognize and vehemently reject the insidious temptations of bribery and corruption that often accompany the drug trade.

    “Drug traffickers and their cohorts, who readily use the trap of financial gain to push their nefarious objectives, would attempt to compromise the integrity of anti-narcotic law enforcement officers. Therefore, the officers and men of NDLEA must remain impervious to these temptations.”
