“Part of the measures to scale back drug use within the college is the proposed introduction of the Drug Integrity Test for each new and returning students. The drug integrity test is anticipated to metamorphose into an anti-drug coverage for all greater institutions of studying in Nigeria. It is anticipated that the University of Abuja, being the ‘University of National Unity’, would be the first public college in Nigeria to undertake the drug integrity test for recent and returning students of the establishment.

“The drug integrity test is not a punitive measure; rather it is an early detection tool to ascertain an individual’s drug use status for appropriate intervention, and timely treatment and care. This will also entail that the university will develop a drug policy and make such available to each student.”

Equally essential is the necessity to create an NDLEA outpost on the campus the place we’ll deploy our males to help the authorities, deter drug sellers and customers inside the college.”
