This call to action was made during an online weekly lecture, aligning with the organization’s vision and mission to educate youths, teens, and adults on the imperative to reject drug abuse for a healthier society .
Olayiwola highlighted the importance of raising awareness to deepen understanding of the detrimental effects and consequences of drug abuse on the health system.

Furthermore, Olayiwola stressed the necessity of monitoring the basic and social lifestyles of children, both at home, school, and any social environments, as a proactive measure in combating drug-related issues.
Addressing concerns about underage individuals engaging in drug-related activities, especially in hotels, Olayiwola advocated for  strict adherence to regulations by hotel owners.
