first_imgParticipants at the just ended national stakeholders dialogue Widespread substance abuse in the country has claimed citizens’ attention and, they want government to put an immediate end to it by prosecuting those importing the narcotic substances.The citizens are not alone in their fight to curb drug abuse. Grand Bassa County District #5 Representative Thomas Goshua has also called on citizens, including rural dwellers, particularly those in concession areas, to stop the use of illegal substances, something he observed is now on the increase.“As a government, we need to put stop to this issue, because it is damaging the future of our young generation,” Goshua said.He made the remarks on Thursday, May 24, at a one-day high level national dialogue with stakeholders on progress made so far and the challenges faced by people living in rural areas.The dialogue was held among five counties, including Sinoe, Gbarpolu, Grand Gedeh, Grand Bassa and Bomi/Cape Mount, under the theme, “Strengthening Women’s Right and Participation in Peace-building.”The event was organized by EDUCARE, a local non-governmental organization, to highlight the social effect on those using illegal substances.During the discussions participants expressed concern that if the government does not contain this in the coming years, more people will be like those who are currently in the streets (crazy people) as a result of drug addiction.All of the counties that participated in the training flagged a number of problems, including drug addiction, especially among  youths.In Gbarpolu and Sinoe counties, according to the women representatives at the dialogue, there is a shortage of resourceful men as most of the men in those areas have turned into drug users. The women said most of the men consume narcotic drugs.They accused state security personnel assigned in these counties of aiding drug traffickers because of the kickbacks they receive. “Women are fighting over men because the bulk of the handsome young men in the county are taking drugs; this is serious and needs government intervention.”About the projectEDUCARE is strengthening women rights and participation in peace-building and is working with 1,150 rural women at the grass-root level from across 23 key concession communities in five counties.Under the project, women in the targeted concession areas will be able to engage and meaningfully participate in the management of the natural resources within their communities and place demand for their rights from stakeholders, including demands for the implementation of agreed corporate social responsibility arrangements.Under the project,  23 concession communities women’s development structures have received capacity building assistance, to enable the attainment of mutual benefits through playing the role of mediation, helping to negotiate disagreements and conflicts between the companies and community members.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
