“There’s been this issue which has been in circulation for some time now and that is the abuse of the drug known as Tramadol which is causing immense harm to our youth. I will plead with all Ghanaians to be very vigilant and desist from abusing or misusing the drug,” he said.
CSP Kofi Sarpong added: “It is all about time. Use whatever little you have a good cause for your time will definitely come. Drug abuse is not the way to go about with anything. Let’s do what we can so that our country Ghana can become a much better place for us all to live in.”
