President Buhari Directs Crackdown On Illicit Drug Sellers
President Muhammadu Buhari has instructed law enforcement agencies to deal decisively with all those who import, distribute and sell illicit drugs in the country.
Speaking at an interactive meeting with religious leaders in Kano, on Thursday, in the course of his two-day State visit, the President expressed concern about the growing problem of drugs abuse in the country.
He assured the religious leaders that his administration is determined to do something urgent to deal with the narcotics challenge facing the country.
“The Customs is already doing a good job and I’m happy that I got someone who is efficient, strong and trusted to lead it in the person of Hameed Ali, a former Governor of Kaduna State. I have charged them and other law enforcement agencies to go after those trafficking in illicit drugs that are causing much harm especially among young people,” he said.
