Ablaze Football Club Orientate Youths on Drug Abuse, Cultism

Ablaze Football Club has concluded the second edition of Save Our Future and Say No to Drug Abuse among the Youths in Ijede, Ikorodu, in Lagos State.

This is an initiative by Ablaze FC director Osho Oluwafisayo to eradicate the high rate of drug addiction in the community.

The project involves football tournaments between male and female teams, along with free medical checkups for all players and members of the community.

Seminars are also held to inform the football community on why and how to stay away from drug abuse and its effect on their future and career.

This edition saw the female side Wazbak FA win the female football competition by 9-8 in a penalty shootout after a 1-1 draw, while the male category was won by Ablaze FC academy side Right to Smile Academy against Circle Range FA 4-1.

The three-day programme engaged the community and also went around with the cards to run a campaign on the SAY NO TO DRUG ABUSE meeting with some of the people involved in these risky moments, as some are in secret cults.

Ablaze FC director Osho Oluwafisayo said the program allowed them to have their first experience as victims of cultism.

“This even gave us a room to talk to the young boys and girls around to avoid social vices that would affect their future.

“We met a man who said he was so talented in football, but when he joined cultism, he couldn’t go out again and always had to remain within, which he regretted. Saying that’s why he takes drugs to drown his sorrow, he revealed we should do more projects like this to help the kids from making the same mistakes,” he explains.

Free medical checkups were done for the people of the community and the football academies involved, both male and female.

The next edition is in March, and we will be bringing physiotherapists, doctors, and speakers to impact the lives of these young ones.
