‘More Katsina Women Doing Drugs Because Of Men’
Khadijah Suleiman Saulawa also known as Queen Dijah is an undergraduate. While still in her twenties, she is already looking at what she can do for her society.
The founder of Queen Dijah Women and Children Awareness Initiative, a Non-Governmental Organization, NGO, out to look at issues surrounding the well-being of children and women in the rural areas and beyond, speaks on women doing drugs because of men.
Let’s look at women into drugs, why and where lies the problem?
Mingling with friends who are already deep into the intake of drugs, they are convinced that once they take it, all worries and troubles in their life will be a thing of the past. And so they are convinced to take and before you know it they become used to it so when their husbands are not around they don’t worry because they have what will keep them company.
Many women started this way and gradually it become part of them. I feel it is something to worry about because if nothing is done, the society will be in a mess not because of anything but because the generations to come will be a generation of drug addicts.
A situation where the mother consumes drugs, who controls the children from also going astray. So you can see that it is something that requires urgent attention and we have to start doing doing something about it now.
