Invest In Children, Parents Urged

They were also enjoined to counsel them from time to time to abstain from abuse of  drugs of whatever shade or make, as this would further guarantee them, a long  healthy.

These remarks were made by a consultant psychiatrist of the Lagos University  Teaching Hospital, Idi-Araba, Surulere, Lagos, Dr. Yewande Oshodi at a seminar on  drug abuse titled: A Transformative Agenda for Youths Well Being. The event was  sponsored by the Mens’ Missionary Union New Dawn Baptist Church, Victoria Island,  Lagos, as its contribution, to mark Nigeria’s Golden Jubilee anniversary  celebration.

While counselling youths against the abuse of drugs, the scholar and administrator  warned them on the negative consequences of such abuse that may distance them from  the society. Enumerating several types of drugs and prescriptions, Dr. Oshodi warned  that since excess of anything is bad, it behoves on them to administer such drugs  according to prescription by a medical authority.
