The US Consul General, John Bray, has commended the Chairman of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, Ahmadu Giade, for providing 10 years of outstanding leadership to the agency.


A statement by the agency’s spokesperson, Mitchel Ofoyeju, said on Wednesday in Lagos that the consul general made the commendation during a visit to the agency’s headquarters.


The statement also said that Bray commended the management for engineering Nigeria’s rising international profile in anti-drug campaign.

The statement said, "Through your guidance and expertise, the agency has raised its international profile and fostered international cooperation with major stakeholders.


"These accomplishments have created a foundation upon which the NDLEA can combat drug trafficking and strengthen the security of the Nigerian people.


“By furthering the counter-narcotics efforts of NDLEA, you have played an important role in protecting the citizens of Nigeria and countering international crime, illegal drugs and instability which ultimately affects both our countries.


“In recognition of the outstanding leadership and management of the NDLEA, the USDEA extends its hand of gratitude to the chairman of the agency for 10 years of service to the people of Nigeria.


“The world looks to your leadership and has found a friend and ally in the global fight against international drug trafficking.”


It added that the NDLEA boss in his response said that he was humbled by the avalanche of commendation for his 10 years of service.
