Buhari Receives Report of Marwa’s Presidential Committee on Drug Abuse


President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday received the report of the Presidential Advisory Committee for the Elimination of Drug Abuse at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the advisory committee, which was constituted by the president on Dec. 11, 2018, is chaired by a former Military Administrator of Lagos state, retired Brig. Gen. Buba Marwa.

Other members of the committee included the wives of the President and Vice-President, Hajiya Aisha Buhari and Mrs Dolapo Osinbajo as members.
