The coalition of 52 Northern Groups said the North is set to wage war against drug abuse and addiction in the states to save the future of youths in the region.
It also raised the alarm over the continuous rise of drug abuse and addiction among youths in the Northern part of the country.
National Programme Coordinator of Initiative for Community Action against Drug Abuse (ICAADA), Mr Samaila Musa, said this at a briefing in Abuja.
He said a bleak future awaits Nigeria if urgent steps are not taken to tackle the high rise of drug abuse by most Nigerian Youths.
