There is no gain saying the fact that government regulatory agency are fundamental to the sub-stratum of national development.
The historical antecedent of the country Nigeria has already shown that the functionality of the government of the day is manifested via the activities of its agencies. In as much as government cannot operate in isolation. Therefore, government agency is an engine and bedrock for national development.
According to merrian websters collegiate dictionary, government agency is an establishment engaged in doing business for another or an administrative division of government.
Government agency equally entails any executive department, commission, independent establishment and corporation, wholly or partly owned by the government. Be that as it may, in order to conduct the business of government effective, the tasks of government are broken down into different parts and tasks assigned to a ministry will then put up institution or corporation or boards that will be assigned particular functions geared towards the achievement of the goals of the ministry.
These ministries, departments or bureaus and their derivative agencies will then be the instruments for the provision of the major functions of government which include maintenance of law and order, maintain of territorial integrity of the country.
Provision of basic infrastructure, provision of certain goals and services which private organization will not be able to provide.

They have really served as veritable impire in the or against the activities, processing, sale, trafficking and use of hard drugs in the country.
However, their activities towards attaining national development have been bedeviled with so many challenges which this master pieces hope to forestall via it’s recommendations.
1.1 BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
The National Drug law Enforcement Agency is Nigeria’s sole body that regulates and eliminates the growing, processing, manufacturing, selling, exporting, and trafficking of hard drugs.
It is a parastatal of the federal ministry of health. NDLEA was established via decree 48 of 1989 and the decree prescribed stiffer penalties for convicted offenders.

By the end of the decade there were public calls to restore it.
Sticker security measures were introduced to Lagos international airport in 1989 and a plan was instituted in August 1989 to control black market activities.
The NDLEA maintains a presence at international airport, making regular seizure of hard drug from individual couriers and conducts raids at seaports and border checkpoints. Efforts to eradicate cannabis cultivation focused and destruction is isolation plantings, the NDLEA has attempted to shift the focus of operations from the arrest of the couriers to the prosecution of controlling members of narcotics and money laundering organizations.
Despite counters narcotic effort by the NDLEA, increasingly large quantities of drug pour through Nigeria’s land and sea boarders. Nigeria’s extensive land boarders are poorly patrolled and relevant law enforcement agencies are rife with corruption.
To help pilot the activities, it was agreed that fearless leadership was not to compromised Mr. Fidelis Oyachilome, then a police commissioner and former governor of Rivers state was assigned the privilege responsibility of becoming the agency’s first chairman. Although NDELA efforts have created at least some risk that couriers may be caught at the air port traffickers continue to use air cargo and express mail services, Nigeria trafficking networks rely increasingly on bulk shipments by land and sea smuggle drugs into and out of country.
In common parlance, the agency was saddled with the responsibilities of controlling interdicting and intercepting the trafficking peddling and usage of hard drugs in and out the country. It also educates the public on the effect of hard drugs on the nation and on the people.

1.7 LIMITATION OF THE STUDY
A study of this nature cannot be done apparently without some inherent tasks. The researcher was faced with certain challenges and plights in the process of carrying out this study.
The researcher as a final year student had a lot of financial commitment in the process of writing this project especially as he had two write and defend term paper in other course in fulfillment of their requirement. This issues of the structuring, administering and collection of data was up heal task. The going gets tough when the researcher made bold step to collect relevant documents, and data in his place of interest NDLEA the negligence and unruly behaviour of the authority almost demoralized and researcher but glory be to God that kept the flag flying.
Similarity, the project writing became mare hectic and tedious owing to the shortness, of the semester. In this case, the researcher played a dual role, studying for his final exam and does that of the project writing.
The greatest of the challenges is that the researcher is writing a fresh topic which was stressful hence, it was really a fact finding where he has to spend most of this fortune researching in internet, library and other reference material relevant to the topic.
However, the researcher had no alternative other than to face these challenges and eventually overcome them. We thank God for such academic break through.
