Former President Muhammadu Buhari says all concerned citizens must unite to end the menace of drug abuse in Katsina State.

Buhari said this at a dialogue organised by a group of concerned Katsina elders, Katsina Consultative Forum, KCF, with the theme, ‘Tackling the menace of drug abuse among youths in Katsina State.’

He said the issue of drug abuse among the youth and women in the state is a great concern that requires proactive approach to nip in the bud.


“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, 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.”
