This was as Marwa dedicated the award to the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd) and the staff of the anti-narcotics agency.

The event which was themed, ‘Credible Elections and Economy in Transition’, was chaired by Osinbajo, while a former Prime Minister of Kenya, Raila Odinga, served as keynote speaker.

Marwa noted that without Buhari’s support and that of NDLEA staff, who carry out the jobs, he wouldn’t have achieved the successes recorded by the the anti-narcotics agency.

On the award, the NDLEA boss said it would propel him and others in the agency to do more and address the menace of drug abuse and peddling in the country.

Marwa said, “This award is going to ginger us, encourage us to do even more in this fight. It is a fight that we are succeeding in and we will succeed.

“We must appreciate the president, Muhammadu Buhari for giving us the necessary support and encouragement to carry out our duties effectively.

“We must also appreciate the staff of the agency, who are the foot soldiers for carrying out the job effectively. I appreciate the men and women of the agency for without them also, I will not be here.”
