The paramount ruler of Kaltungo in Gombe State Sale Muhammad is worried over the rate at which the youths are gradually turning into Science Students.

He has charged other traditional rulers across the country to rid their communities of drug dealers who take pleasure in destroying lives of the youths by selling these drugs to them

He said: “This is because these types of people have nothing to add to the development of the society rather than destroying lives of youths who are the future of the society”.

Muhammad said the use of drugs amongst youth needs to be addressed as issue of public interest because it is impeding progress of so many youths across Nigeria.

The traditional father also said even though jobs these days are hard to come by, he admonished the youths who have finished their studies and those still in school to make sure they secure something to hold as business or way of making ends meet.

He also called on both Gombe state and the Federal Governments to add more to what they have been doing to improve the life and way of thinking of youth in the country as they are so many youths who are in urgent need of government intervention.

Reacting to his statement, a traditional title holder in Kaltungo, Mai Kalungo, Nasiru Yelma, advised the youths to engage in ventures that would add value to them and the society.
