The Chairman of the committee, Gali Sule, disclosed this during an interview with newsmen on Saturday, NAN reports.
According to Sule, the state’s ranking on the consumption of fake drugs has improved as it drops from number one to six in a recent rating.
He stressed that it has helped in sanitising the society, the nation and many African countries from engaging in sales of fake and counterfeit drugs.
“We have destroyed all the seized drugs in the state. Drug hawkers in Kano have equally reduced drastically unlike before when they were everywhere.
