So, as youth, who think we have a bright future ahead, we should not fold our a Mrs to see these menace thriving in our midst. We have to do something.
“Our NGO has engaged in advocacy visits to some secondary achools in Kano. We have visited traditional leaders and communities on drug abuse. We have a face to face contact with the addict and we have advocated for the dangers of drug abuse. We are recording success in this regard.
“We also meet political leaders on how to bring end to societal vices and we shall continue. We will not rest on our oarse God willing,” Saleh said.
