Description

The 2017 edition of the summit is the 3rd in series and having successfully hosted two editions in 2015 in and 2016, with support and partnership from the US Consulate Lagos, UNODC, NDLEA, Office of the Attorney General and Minister of Justice and the Senior Assistant to the President on Youth and Student Affairs, we believe that if the campaign against drugs and substance abuse in Nigeria will be won, sustaining the project will be highly instrumental to the campaign.

It is on public knowledge that most Nigerian youths are falling victims of drugs and substance abuse and illicit drug trafficking which has led them into taking over rehabilitation homes as permanent residents while others are either languishing in jail or facing execution in foreign lands due to their drug related activities.

The summit which is schedule to take place on the 19th - 20th October, 2017, in Abuja, intends to bring together 500 youth leaders and heads of youth focused NGOs spearheading the fight against drug, substance abuse and illicit trafficking within the country for the purpose of appraising the war against drug/substance abuse and illicit trafficking and also acquaint them with world best practices in the global fight against illicit trafficking, drug and substance abuse prevention.

The Summit promises to create awareness on the dangers and repercussion associated with young people getting involved in drugs and substance abuse and also stimulate discussion on possible suggestions on prevention, policy formulation and implementation as it affects young people in the Nigeria. It will create a platform for interaction and idea sharing on the level of youth participation in the fight against drugs abuse and illicit trafficking in Nigeria.

The Summit will come up with a communiqué and position paper on the possible solutions to drug/substance abuse and illicit trafficking in the overall development and wellbeing of young people in Nigeria which will be submitted to National Assembly and other regulatory authorities for the consideration and actions.

  • Keynote Speeches and Paper Presentation
