By Nurat Uthman

Concerned about the increasing occurrence of immoral activities among young people, the Delta State House of Assembly has urged for the implementation of appropriate laws to apprehend and prosecute individuals involved in public prostitution and the consumption of illegal drugs in the state.

During a plenary session chaired by Speaker Emomotimi Guwor, the House adopted a resolution emphasizing the need to condemn both public prostitution and illicit drug use in all aspects.

The resolution was prompted by a motion presented by Bridget Anyafulu, the representative for Oshimili South, and was amended by Emeka Nwaobi, the Majority Leader.

In the resolution, the House called upon Governor Sheriff Oborevwori to instruct the Commissioner for Women Affairs, Community and Social Development, as well as law enforcement agencies, to take action in order to address this concerning trend.

The Assembly also advocated for regular awareness campaigns and educational programs, including the placement of posters and signs in strategic locations, to inform and raise awareness about the risks associated with engaging in commercial sex trade and using illicit drugs.

Furthermore, the relevant government agencies were encouraged to conduct regular training, counseling, and rehabilitation programs as part of efforts to address this alarming issue.

During the debates, Anyafulu emphasized the necessity of the motion, highlighting that if left unaddressed, public prostitution and illicit drug use would continue to pose a significant threat to the younger generation.
