According to him, the platform was equally intended to establish a strong collaboration on how best to tackle the negative effects of the prevailing drug abuse amongst youths and married women, who constituted highest percentage involved in the immoral act.

Towards this end, the MATAN chairman emphasised the need to join forces with the agency by mapping out effective modalities capable of arresting the problem.
