Buba Marwa, the chairman of the National Drugs Law Enforcement Agency, has said he has asked for permission to conduct drug tests on all presidential aspirants of the All Progressive Congress (APC) as part of the proposed screening exercise.
Marwa, made this known while addressing NDLEA officers in Abuja during an award ceremony.
He also said he hopes other political parties would embrace his idea and participate in the exercise.
It is however not known how the NDLEA boss intends to carry out his proposed plan.
Reports are rife that his plans might not be unconnected with previous drug use allegations and charges against some politicians.
You would recall that, in the early 1990s, Bola Tinubu, was reported to have been arrested and charged with trafficking heroin and other hard drugs in the United States.
He was also reported to have forfeited hundreds of thousands of dollars to the U.S. government following his indictment at the time.
All the allegations have however been denied.
While corroborating the proposed plan of the NDLEA boss, Femi Babafemi, the spokesman for the NDLEA, when contacted said, additional details of the drug test for politicians will be made public later.
