As the nation gets ready for the upcoming elections, Innocent Idibia, widely known as 2Baba, has urged the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) to step up its efforts to combat drug usage.

On Thursday in Abuja, he led representatives of the 2Baba Foundation and a group from the National Democratic Institute (NDI) on a courtesy visit to retired Brig. Gen. Marwa, chairman of the NDLEA.

He said that the country must be free of drugs before, during, and after the elections because they had continued to be a significant source of electoral violence.

2Baba, is also the president of the foundation, said that the meeting was part of his foundation’s efforts at promoting the “Vote Not Fight; Election No be War” campaign.

“We want to give you kudos for that but we want you to step it up, especially as the election is around the corner. We are also willing and ready to with you to spread the campaign,” he said.
