DFC OAU chapter has existed for 24years and has been propagating the gospel of drug usage and abuse across every secondary schools in Ile-Ife, as it’s believed that you can catch them young before they get exposed to drug and its abuse.

Under drug free club, there are different units, which are: Editorial unit, Intelligence unit and the Outreach unit.

Drug free club Obafemi Awolowo University just broke record as they successfully inducted 66 new members. For a club everyone thinks is under pharmacy and only for pharmacy students, this is something huge. Different students from different departments.

The induction ceremony held on the 12th day of March at HSLT C. The theme for the induction was
