The CACOBAG chairman said that Marwa would bring his experiences to bare in the fight against illicit drugs and substance abuse in the country.

Raheem said Marwa has the capacity to unmask and deal decisively with drug barons and their conspirators wherever they might be hiding.







“Every patriotic Nigerian knows that the time is up illicit drug traffickers and syndicates, his competence is not in doubt,” said.

Raheem urged Nigerians to discountenance the disparaging statements being peddled in against Marwa, describing such as “calculated attempts to assassinate his character and diminish his goodwill”.

said, “Marwa is a decent, patriotic, energetic, and detribalized Nigerian.






“He believes in selfless service to humanity. agency of the government or court in and overseas has indicted him of corruption.”

The chairman restated the coalition’s commitment to the fight against corruption and bad governance.

“We will never compromise our commitment to fight corruption in the interest of the people,” he said.






President Buhari had on Jan. 15 appointed Marwa as the Chairman of NDLEA following the expiration of the tenure of the agency’s former chairman, retired Col. Muhammad Abdallah. (NAN)
