Bukola Saraki 1 - Saraki laments over Drug abuse in the North

Nigeria’s senate president, Bukola Saraki has raised alarm over the rising cases of drug abuse in the northern part of the country.

Saraki, in a post on his social media page, stated that the drug menace in the North needed to be addressed in a sensible and urgent manner. He wrote;

“I am particularly worried about the drug menace in the Northern part of the country. It is time that we recognize this problem and address it in a sensible manner.

I will be pushing for the National Assembly to review all relevant laws on abuse. This will help to curb the widespread misuse of illegal and unsanitary substances.

The Senate will engage with all relevant stakeholders as we initiate this process.”
