A number of field work have been carried out and solutions preferred but not much efforts have been made by the family, the school and the government in this aspects. This study is an attempt to investigate absence of moral instructions in public schools and its effects on adolescents to drugs. Youths are the country’s asset and future teachers. The need to guide their moral behaviours into adulthood and make them see reasons to live together in peace, care for one another and to be able to face challenges in life calls for this research work.
