Masari’s 1st wife made passionate appeal to Katsina women and youths

Apparently disturbed by the alarming rate of drug abuse among married women, youths and children in Katsina State, wife of the state governor, Hajiya Khadija Aminu Bello Masari, has enjoined women and youths to steer clear of narcotic substances to enable them live a better life.

Hajiya Khadija Bello who is the founder of a non-governmental organisation, NGO, Centre for the Advancement of Mothers and Children, made this appeal in an interactive session with journalists in Katsina, said their involvement in the act of drug abuse and others is an impediment to their future ambitions.

The Governor’s wife said the abuse of prescribed and self- medication of drugs by women and children has become a source of worry, urging stakeholders and parents, especially fathers to ensure proper supervision of their family members.

“In our community, the effects of drugs are evident. The abuse of codeine cough syrups, Tramadol and Rohypnol to mention a few is fast assuming a not alarming rate,” she posited, calling on all to join hands with her NGO to change the unfortunate trend.

According to her, the youths, especially the girl-child and married women are becoming disobedient and deviant in nature.

Spouse battering and broken homes have also been traceable to the substance abuse, its use is also linked to heinous crimes like murder, arson, rape and cultism amongst others.

On the efforts made by her NGO to address the menace in the state, Hajiya Masari maintained that, her NGO has done well in enlightening women and children on the dangers of drug abuse and empowered them to become self-reliant.

She added that the task to curbing the menace requires adequate education and proper enlightenment about the dangers of drugs, appealing to parents, specifically fathers to assist their wives in ensuring the supervision of their children who are future leaders.
