The Adeleke University Students Association (AUSA), Ede, has flagged off its anti-peer pressure campaign aimed at discouraging its members against drugs, insecurity, peer pressure and depression. The campaign was organized in collaboration with House of Elysian (H.O.E.)
The Association, at a well attended occasion held at the David Adeleke Performing Arts Theatre, at the weekend, said the event was its response to the alarming rate of drug abuse among youths in the country.
President of AUSA, Temitope Ogunshakin, who observed the need for his members to contribute efforts to salvaging the situation added that all hands must be on the deck to urgently redeem lives of students and youths who are already affected by the menace.
Dignitaries in attendance included the University’s Dean, Students’ Care Services, Professor Matina Atere, Dean of the University’s Students’ Care Services; Dr. Dokun Adedeji, a seasoned Medical Doctor, and C.E.O. of Christ Against Drug Abuse Ministry (CADAM); Mrs. Dotun Arifalo, General Overseer of Dominion House Ministry, Lagos; Sir Gbenga Ademujimi, President of the KingsHill Coaching Academy; and Jesujoba Adejumo, the in-house speaker from the University’s Faculty of Law.
Ademujimi, who is the Guinness World Record Ambassador Holder for Sebecly Cancer Foundation, 2015, talked about the dangers of hard drugs and peer pressure. He examined the mentality of youths of this generation, canvassing that a major positive revolution had to take place.
Director of Media and Protocols of the Students’ Association, Tomiwa Fadeyi, noted that students of the University “have never been this much impacted, in any programme before now”.
