In order to combat the problem of drug abuse in Katsina State, Former President Muhammadu Buhari urges all citizens to come together.

Buhari made this statement at a dialogue hosted by the Katsina Consultative Forum, a group of concerned elders in Katsina.

The event, titled ‘Tackling the menace of drug abuse among youths in Katsina State,’ highlighted the urgent need for proactive measures to address the widespread issue of drug abuse, particularly among the youth and women in the state.

“Our youths represent our beloved assets, and protecting them is crucial for our nation’s future. We can’t afford to watch drug abuse dismantle their potential and the country’s future.“I urge all of us to unite and act decisively against drug abuse in Katsina State. We must not turn away from this self-inflicted suffering of our youths.

“We need to confront this issue collectively with determination and resolve the challenges,” he said.

The former president pointed out that youths were the future administrators of the state, and their potentials were immense, saying “you cannot realise these potentials if too many of you succumb to drug abuse addiction.

“Believe in yourself, your ability and your future. I know the challenges you face are many, be up to it; we’ll work together to offer you the support and the opportunity needed.”
