Buba Marwa Assumes Office As The New Chairman Of NDLEA

A former military governor of Lagos State, Brigadier-General Buba Marwa (rtd) has assumed office as the new Chairman of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA). This comes after he was appointed to the position by President Muhammadu Buhari. 

His appointment was approved on Saturday by President Muhammadu Buhari and it was with immediate effect.

Until this appointment, Buba Marwa was the Chairman of the Presidential Committee on Drug Abuse.

Assuming office on Monday, Marwa said his plan to overhaul the agency was in agreement with the recommendations of the presidential advisory committee for the elimination of drug abuse (PACEDA).

Burba Marwa said it would also be within existing financial constraints, and the authorisation of the appropriate superior authorities.

“Together, by the grace of God, we will resuscitate and reposition NDLEA to full active life, to be effective, respected and feared by concerned criminals. Nigeria is the only country we have, we cannot fold our arms. We can, will and must eliminate the drug scourge,” he said.
