Personnel of the National Drugs Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) need to be highly motivated to win the war against drug trafficking in the country, the agency’s chief executive, Buba Marwa, has said.
Marwa said this on Wednesday while inaugurating a 7-member harmonization committee to address all issues hampering the smooth running of the agency in Abuja.
He said he met personnel morale at its lowest ebb as he assumed leadership of the agency three weeks ago.
“The first thing is to resolve the issue of low morale,” Marwa said.
“We need to develop a proper, accurate and credible seniority roll for the personnel. We have officers in the various commands whose promotion has been delayed for no just cause whereas the vacancies are there. Others have been overtaken by their juniors. This is an error that must be addressed,” he said.
