The President of the Bong County Motorcyclists Union, is appealing to government to make drugs law non-bailable in the Country.

Mr. Sam B. Elloitt speaking to KMTV Monday in Gbarnga, Bong County said, when the law is non-bailable, it will discourage the act of drugs trafficking in Liberia.

He maintained that drugs destroy every society and undermine the growth of a nation, stressing the need for the Liberian government through the legislature to swiftly act.

The Bong County Motorcyclists’ President wants drugs dealers and producers to be sentenced to prison for some years, adding that it will serve as deterrence for those that might like to engage into such business.

Mr. Elloitt also admonished authorities of the County to design programs that will help to sensitize young people in the County about the effects of drugs.

“We need to create awareness about the effect of the substance, I believe that doing so will help minimize the number of drugs users in the Country.” he added.

Mr. Elloitt said the future of the Country lies in the hands of the young people and as such it is better for the young people to fully prepare to take on the mantle of leadership instead of engaging into activities that might spoil the country in years to come.
