Marwa who also appealed to Government to lead the way with integrity drug test for students in the state, said that youths are the most affected when it comes to the issue of drug abuse.
“Running for public offices is a big responsibility. You should not be in this important assignment for the public and your head is filled up because of drugs.
“The drug scourge is now an epidemic in Nigeria. The prevalence is 15 per cent; three times the global average. One in seven Nigerians takes drugs. We have found out that there is nexus between drug use and crime,” he said.
