Aisha Buhari Moves On To Drug Abusers
President Muhammadu Buhari’s wife, Aisha, will not allow the issues in her husband’s government to slow her down from making societal impact.
This is important particularly based on the belief that bad leadership is not Nigeria’s only problem but also drug abuse.
She shared some thought about issues of drug abuse on Wednesday, when she inaugurated the Kogi Drug Rehabilitation and Resource Centre in Lokoja which was established to help victims of drug abuse.
The centre was inaugurated on her behalf by Hajia Adeiza Abubakar, wife of the Bauchi Governor, who is the Chairperson of the Northern Governors’ Wives Forum (NGWF).
Mrs Buhari, in her remarks at the occasion, expressed confidence that the centre would restore drug patients’ physical, sensory and mental capabilities, which were lost due to injury, illness or disease.
She described drug abuse as one of the challenges facing Nigeria, saying that it was largely responsible for anti-social behaviour among the youths.
Speaking earlier, Governor Yahaya Bello said that the centre was equipped with a clinic and dispensary for the health needs of members of staff and patients, as well as a childcare section for infants abandoned by their poor mothers.
He said that there was also an eldercare and mini recreational centre for senior citizens.
