“I’m saddened to see our brothers and sisters in this situation. Let me use this opportunity to call on stakeholders to support this laudable initiative by the Mayor of Nima. I know that through a gradual process, our brothers and sisters will listen to our plea to stay away from drugs and become better and more useful to our motherland”.
