He said it would go a long way in improving operations of the agency on the campaign against drug addiction in Nigeria.
He said increased consumption of illicit drugs among the youths in Taraba was worrisome, appealing to families to live up to their responsibilities.
According to Abdallah, effective drug prevention must involve positive engagement of children, youths and adults with their families, schools, workplace, and community.
He commended Governor Darius Ishaku of Taraba for his support to the agency in addressing drug problems in the state.
He also commended Mrs. Anna Darius, wife of the governor, for giving great impetus to the war against drug abuse in the state.
The chairman thanked the governor for including NDLEA commandant in the state’s Security Council as well as supporting the agency with operational vehicles.
He noted that the provision of Hope Afresh Foundation, a Non-Governmental Organisation, managed by the wife of the governor for sensitization against drug abuse was a great boost to anti-drug abuse campaign.
Earlier, Acting Commander of NDLEA in the state, Mr. Peter Odaudu, had said that the agency had assembled seven tonnes (6,963.80 kilograms) of dead weeds and psychotropic substances for destruction.
Odaudu said that the exhibits were seized between January 2003 and December 2018.
He listed some of the illicit drugs assembled for destruction as Cannabis Sativa, Diazepam, Rophynol, Cough syrups with codeine and Tramadol.
According to him, a court order for their destruction has been duly obtained.
Odaudu commended other security agencies in the state for their cooperation in the success recorded by the NDLEA.
He commended the state government for supporting the agency towards ensuring effective control in the consumption of illicit drugs in the state.
In his remarks, the state governor, Mr. Darius Ishaku, said that drug consumption had led to increasing in violent crimes in the state.
Ishaku, who was represented by the Deputy Governor Haruna Manu, said that most persons arrested for violent crimes in the state were youths.
He, therefore, urged the youths to avoid the use of illicit drugs, saying that it was dangerous to their health and society.
He also urged the agency to collaborate with the office of the First Lady to achieve more feat in its mandate of ensuring a drug-free society.
Ishaku said that the construction of health centers by the first lady’s foundation for sensitization in the three senatorial zones was a better platform to adopt by the agency.
He assured the agency of continued support by the state government to eradicate drug abuse.
