He said: “Prior to this; Kano Sate ranked first in the drug abuse index in the country, we recorded a lot of achievements in the fight against illicit drugs.

“I am happy to note that the state dropped to the sixth position in the national drug abuse index,

“It is a great success in the fight against the menace among youth.”
