American trained Nigerian investigative journalist, Dr. Kemi Olunloyo, has been appointed as Special Adviser to President Bola Ahmed Tinubu on Drug Abuse Education.

This was disclosed in a social media post on the timeline of the Nigerian controversial journalist, Dr. Kemi Olunloyo.

Disclosing her new role in the administration of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the daughter of a former Oyo State Governor, Dr. Olunloyo said President Tinubu communicated to her, his intention to bring her to the administration on April 1st, 2024.

She said, "On April 1st, 2024, President Tinubu spoke with me about coming back home to save Nigerian youth from drug abuse so we can get more education into schools, communities, and workplaces. I have been appointed the Special Adviser to the President on Drug Abuse Education. Myself and Mr President will commission the Office of Drug Abuse Education which will work side by side with the NDLEA once I’m cleared by the Senate.

Following the assignment given to Dr. Olunloyo in his home country, Nigeria, she has decided to drop her ambition to go to the Senate in Baltimore, Maryland, United States of America.

She said "I will be dropping my state senate political ambition in Baltimore, Maryland, United States of America for now to return to Nigeria and make a difference. I was an award-winning drug abuse expert in Baltimore, USA, and was honored by President Clinton’s administration, late Gen Colin Powell’s volunteer awards, Maryland’s Most Beautiful People volunteer awards, Governor Glendenning, Baltimore County Executive Dutch Ruppersburger, Baltimore Mayor Kurt Schmoke, Congressman Ben Cardin, Senator Barbara Mikulski, NAACP President Congressman Kweisi Mfume, The US Justice Department, Immigration and Naturalization Services who gave me my Green card in the category of Alien of Exceptional ability.

Speaking on what might have influenced her choice by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to join the war against drug abuse in Nigeria, Dr. Olunloyo appreciated those who made her 18-month anti-drug abuse campaign possible between February 2022 and August 2023.

"Thank you to everyone who supported my 18-month volunteer drug abuse education campaign with the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency from February 2022 to August 2023 while I was in Nigeria including all those who attended the Twitter Spaces and all schools and communities I visited in Lagos. Illicit drugs have no place in Nigerian schools, communities, and workplaces," she stated.
Dr. Kemi Olunloyo has been a controversial investigative journalist over the years, and The Round Table has a collection of her stories.
