The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) said only one 2023 candidate for the 2023 elections appeared for integrity test in Katsina.

NDLEA State Commander, Muhammed Bashir made the disclosure to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Tuesday.

Bashir said only the Peoples Redemption Party (PRP) governorship flagbearer, Imran Jino visited the agency for the test and tested free.

The official urged politicians contesting for various political positions in Katsina to come for the test.

The NDLEA commander added that doing such would encourage their supporters to shun drug abuse.

“Politicians should not encourage those using drugs within their campaign environment, and we are still advising them to come up for integrity tests.

“I’m happy that one of the governorship candidates has done that; others should take a cue from that.”

Bashir noted that the electioneering ahead of the 2023 general elections can be free, fair and peaceful if politicians caution their followers against hard abuse.

“As a politician, you don’t need to give drugs to your supporters for them to be able to support you and you don’t need to be violent.”

The NDLEA commander described drug abuse as the mother of all crimes and that giving illicit substances to youths will destroy them.
