According to a statement signed by the Project Coordinator, Olayinka Shojupe, the one-day symposium is aimed to programme the minds of the younger ones to work against abusive or reckless use of drugs, either recommended or self-adopted.

 

According to Shojupe, the symposium “will go a long way in keeping the youths away from becoming negative influences on the growth and development of the great division”.

 

The organizer states further that plans are ongoing to ensure that the symposium is not only an engaging one for participants but its resultant effects would also be positively felt by all and sundry across Ikorodu division.

 

The symposium is slated to hold at the multipurpose hall of Oriwu Model College, Ikorodu by 10 am.

 

Expected to engage participants at the symposium as speakers are Comrade Ohi Obadan, Mrs. Kikelomo Sowemimo, Dr. Nonso (Aproko doctor) amongst others.
