He expressed this  while  speaking to  newsmen  at the end of the one day event with the theme: ‘Team Work Makes  the Dream Work’ held at the Murtala Square,  Kaduna  on Saturday.

“It’s about  sensitizing the community.  Not just children  alone,  we are looking  at the agents  of socialization,  parents  community  leaders  and everybody in the community  because the drug issue  is consuming  our community.

 “We need to talk,  we need to work as a team,   that’s why  we chose the theme we are using this year, ” he said.

He explained  that the fight against drug abuse required all hands to be on deck for it to be successful.

“We want everybody  to  key in because as a team, we can always win,” he expressed.

Abdulwahab described the outing  as a huge success.

“It was absolutely  successful  the schools  that came were happy  and the lecture they  received  was very educative,” he pointed out.

On how his organization  was able to put together such  a financially  consuming event,  he said they did it with help from  others.

“It was sponsored by TEWORH Sports and Skills  Centre,  with  support  from schools like,  Little  Scholars  who supported financially  and morally,  as well as Albidayatu Jameelah  Schools.

“The Kaduna State  Government graciously   gave us facility  to use through  the ministry of sports.

“Dr.  Hasheem  Saidu of Health and Happiness  Foundation,  that presented  the lecture  supported  us financially,  morally  and with books,  Linking  Hand Foundation  also  supported  us,” he said,  while appreciating all that contributed for the noble gesture.

He expressed optimism that the annual  event  which has been held for five years  consecutively  will be sustained,  while appealing  for  more support  from corporate  organisations and public spirited  individuals.

No fewer than 200 students from six  schools  participated in the event.
