I would like to take this opportunity to thank God, H.E the President, the Deputy President for the appointment into the National Authority for the Campaign Against Alcohol and Drug Abuse Board (NACADA.) This is very humbling and I promise to work very hard towards ensuring that the task a head is accomplished as per expectations.
