FUTA Don Urges Youths To Desist From Using Drugs

Youths across the world have been advised to desist from the use and dependence on drugs to boost performance at any level.

Speaking at a parliamentary debate on Youth and Substance abuse at the Federal University of Technology, Akure (FUTA), Prof. (Mrs.) Virginia Ola (Head of Department, General Studies) impressed on students the need to steer clear the consumption of hard and smart drugs which have recently been misunderstood to contain vitamins and herbs which improve brain cells, avoid and treat brain damage, increase mental alertness and reduce memory loss.

Reacting to the debate motion for the provision of smart drugs for students on demand by University Health Centres, Prof. Ola expressed shock at the dependence of some youths on what they referred to as boosters.She stressed that though there could be immediate and temporary satisfaction, the end product was self destruction.

Ola called on students not to abuse their brains by staying passive and dependent, charging them to be curious, adventurous, thoughtful and out spoken.
The don encouraged them to be great listeners and researchers in order to develop the language and carriage to address emerging issues, particularly those affecting young people, the nation and the world at large.

The debate was characterized by arguments from parliamentarians which left the opposition of the motion highlighting over dose, over dependence, excessive drug circulation and abuse as some of the effects of the use of smart drugs.

  1. Temporary satisfaction is synonymous with “get it qiuck syndrome”.
    It does more harm than good. In this case, the end does not justify the means rather the end is destroyed by the means.
    I urge my fellows to desist from the use of such offensive drugs.
    Thanks.
