Adamawa State will join the rest of the world in commemorating World Drug Day with a weeklong series of activities beginning with today's Press Briefing (20th June 2022); Wednesday's Advocacy Road Walk Against Drugs; Friday's Juma'at prayers; Saturday's Guest Lecture at the Federal College of Education-1000 Yola's capacity hall; and Sunday's thanksgiving service at the Spiritlife Power Embassy at Karewa Extension – Jimeta.
