President Muhammadu Buhari has appointed his wife, Aisha, as a member of the Presidential Advisory Committee on the Elimination of Drug Abuse.

“Drug and alcohol abuse are also major occupational hazards among Nigerian workers, professionals, notably drivers, which contribute to making Nigerian roads particularly dangerous, he said while inaugurating the board on Monday.

” The drugs that are commonly abused include but not limited to alcohol, cigarettes, caffeine, Tramadol, codeine, etc.

“Today marks the beginning of another milestone in correcting the root cause of some of the ills of today’s society in order to safeguard our common existence and guarantee a brighter future for our current generation and those yet on born.

“The role is specifically targeted at decimating the disastrous havoc that drug abuse could cause on the very fabric of our society,” he said.

“This is a situation of emergency and we must face and address it as such.”

Mrs Buhari recently handed over a fully-equipped, state-of-the-art maternity complex to the Katsina State Government, in fulfilment of her commitment to improving the healthcare delivery system in Nigeria and the reduction of the health burden of women.

The Committee has the former Military Administration of Lagos, Brig. Gen. Buba Marwa, retd, as its chairman.

Buhari also inaugurated the Ministerial Steering Committee, which is headed by the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Boss Mustapha.
