Call For New Strategy To Fight Against MET In Anambra State

Do you know what is called ‘Mkputu mmiri’?

 One of the greatest threat today in Igbo land especially in our dear state, Anambra is drug abuse among youths.

Various community youth leadership in Anambra State have adopted flogging anyone found to be taking the MET (Mkpuru Mmiri).
The question has been, will such beating solve or stop someone that is already addicted to that?

My view is that we should embark on advocacy, reorientation and rehabilitation programs among other things as approach against the new threat from consumption of ‘Mkpuru Mmiri’. The government and civil society organizations should lead this strategy.

In Anambra State, the state Ministries of Health, Youth, Women affairs, LGA etc should synergies and coordinate the advocacy, reorientation and rehabilitation of youths on issue of Mkpuru Mmiri menace.

In Anambra State, we have in existence, a well organized local community administrative system(Town Union). Community administrative system in Anambra State remain a major infrastructure through which the above listed State Government Ministries and Civil organisations can effectively manage the growing ‘Mkputu mmiri’ abuse in the state.

The rehabilitation content should accommodate training them on various skill for productivity purposes.

We can not be facing such challenge and the state govt agencies that should initiate intervention will be busy in Awka while the labour force of the state is under threat due to drug abuse.

You cannot separate the growing consumption of Mkpuru Mmili from violent crime that is creeping into our state.
There is need for the government to takeover the narrative on the issue of Mkpuru Mmiri in the state.

If Awka is too busy to look into the happenings in various communities, why not devolve powers to LGAs who are closer to the people?

I therefore, call for new policy regime in confronting this threat as flogging mkpurummiri users won't solve the scaring challenges in Igboland?

  1. It’s not only Anambra o! Come to Cross River State and see something, especially that small town they call Ogoja. Today is the funeral of their number one drug lord, 90% of the youths are high. Dear Lord... πŸ™

  2. Horrible drug. Drug dealers should get the death penalty. Theres no wickedness greater than this.

    I believe the flogging is workin ooo

  4. Obiano and co with exception of a few still do not what being a governor was all about apart from contract sharing, cheap publicity and fighting opponents

    Social issues were above many if them's mental comprehension and paygrade

  5. Obiano and co with exception of a few still do not what being a governor was all about apart from contract sharing, cheap publicity and fighting opponents

    Social issues were above many of them's mental comprehension and paygrade

  6. Hypocrite
    You are the sponsor of 99% of the killings.
    Your boys can afford your mkpulu mmiri
    due to the millions, stolen millions you are doling out to them.
    Shame! You will never be governor, if you like employ graduates to be writing essays for you.

  7. When their brothers are busy selling to youths of other nations, they celebrate them as moneybags. Now the chicken has come home to roost.

    1. Exactly πŸ‘Œ
      Karma has found their address.
      All those whose brothers and sisters are happy eating the 'fruit of their labour' drug barons, I hope you guys are really happy seeing what drugs are doing to these people.

      What I know is that evil will never triumph OVER good.

    2. πŸ‘ŒπŸ‘ŒπŸ‘ŒπŸ‘Œ

    3. True sha, I love Anambra and their blood runs through me. But the hard truth is that they celebrate money no matter the ugly source, it mostly comes from their drug barons outside Nigeria. Karma is sure real.

  8. Whatever can be done should be done to prevent this from further seeping into our system and becoming a new normal like weed.

    Meth for Christ sake?! It has wrecked so many lives and societies abroad and this is what naija youths see to copy.
    Don't they see the stories of lives and families that have been destroyed?

  9. South east is one of the leading producers of Meth in the world. Thisday newspaper said this about two years ago. The age of cheap money and billionaires without legimate means of generating wealth

  10. Meth wasn't in the Nigerian drug market before😩😩😩 who introduced this killer drugs to Nigerian youthsπŸ€” we are trying to battle the usage of tramadol and codeine amongst youths, only for them to introduce this to them

    1. Meth have been here for a long time. The south east is one of the highest producers in the world. Meth laboratories are very common in the south east according to Thisdayng

  11. Nigeria is sitting on a very dry keg of gunpowder

    Drugs crisis
    Gambling crisis
    Money worship

  12. Pls when is the post coming up for the polygamy epidemic in isoko region of Delta State.
    I'm doing youth service there n I find it beyond shocking, the poverty level is 101%
    Stella look into this.

  13. how this meth take enter najia, abi is locally made

  14. If this enters North... Heyyyy uwa akwulaaa. God help your children
