The immoral acts damage the spirit, soul and body of her youth and render them useless

The able bodied men and women are rendered useless and helpless under the influence of drugs financial crimes which in disguise do them more harm than good

The land gradually has become chaotic and degrading under the influence of the evil acts

Of drug abuse and financial crime by those who hold the key to the success of her future

Calamity upon calamity is the order of the day because of the negative effect of drug abuse 

And financial crime indulged in by our teeming youths of the land
