Northern Governors wives have pledged to train and empower drug abuse clients as part of efforts to curb the menace of substance abuse in society.

This was part of the resolutions reached at the end of their quarterly meeting under the auspices of the Northern Governors Wives’ Forum.

A communique issued to newsmen in Birnin Kebbi read by the forum Chairperson Hajiya Hadiza Isma El-rufai, indicates that the meeting has agreed that all such projects were chosen to round up their tenures in office.

“The meeting agreed to close their tenures, with a specific project that will address problems in their various States.

“The meeting also indicates that some of these challenges include lack of education and women empowerment, especially in the North.

“The meeting also agreed to draw work plans towards alleviating these challenges.”

The meeting also emphasized that all projects agreed upon by the meeting should be completed and commissioned on or before December 2022.

”The spouses of the Northern Governors have also agreed to invite the “Nigeria for Women,” project to brief them.

“The meeting also agreed that all states that are not on the “At-Risk-Children” project should key in for the benefit of the out-of-school children, in particular, and the society, in general.”

the Chairperson of the NGWF, therefore, advised parents whose children have been sexually abused not to feel stigmatized but to report such cases to relevant authorities to forestall recurrence.

The two-day meeting was hosted by the Kebbi State governor’s Wife Dr. Zainab Shinkafi Bagudu at the Government House, Birnin Kebbi.
