While commending federal government over its total ban of codeine containing drugs, Tambuwal appealed for collective effort by all stakeholders in the fight against drug abuse

The governor who, commended Northern Governors’ Wives Forum (NGWF) for their unrelenting efforts towards ensuring  that our society remained drug free, further advised that the tempo should be sustained until Nigeria is certified drug abuse free.

He further extolled  the Sultan of Sokoto and President General, Nigeria Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs (Sa’ad Abubakar III as well as all traditional and religious leaders for their support in that regard.

The governor also commended the state commissioner for health, Dr. Shehu Kakale as well as all the staff of the ministry for individual and collective roles in the fight against drug in Sokoto state.

Talking about the newly commissioned rehabilitation center, Tambuwal assured that, patients hospitalized in the center will be fed freely courtesy of the state government.
