She spoke while receiving members of the Association of Lady Pharmacists (ALP) at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

Mrs. Buhari lamented that the abuse of drugs especially by women and youths has led to the destruction of the lives of millions of victims.

She urged pharmacists to play their part in controlling the spread of drug abuse in the country.

“Government has done well by banning importation of codeine for the preparation of cough syrups as well as retailing of codeine containing cough syrups without prescription,” she said.

“There is the need for pharmacists to comply with the enforcement directive. Lady Pharmacists as mothers, have special roles to play in protecting women and youths against drug abuse.”

Mrs. Buhari extolled members of the pharmaceutical profession for their role in research, production and dispensing of medicines that cure diseases and save lives.

National Chairman, Association of Lady Pharmacists, Pharmacist Zainab Ujudud Shariff commended the efforts of Mrs. Buhari in the plight of IDPs, women and youth empowerment.

She stated the commitment of the ALP to similar ideals, promising to support in any way possible.
