The Symposium will take place on the 23rd and 24th of October; on the 22nd there will be a full day of activities for members of the NGO network organized by CIND. Both the NGO event and the national symposium have received generous support from the EU/UNODC project on “Response to Drugs and Related Organized Crime in Nigeria”.
