Strengthening Nigeria’s Tobacco Control Law
Ordinarily given widespread awareness about the dangers of smoking there should not be some of the cock and bull arguments against strong elements of the bill but there are vested interests that do not want a strong tobacco control bill in the country. The industry selling addiction and death will want a law that makes it business as usual. Nigeria’s over 150 million population remains a major market for unregulated profit regardless of the fact their products kill, cause diseases, and dislocate social fabrics.

In October, media reports informed that the National Tobacco Control Bill have passed Second Reading both at the Senate and the House of Representatives. It is believed that the Health Committees of the two chambers are currently working to sync submissions made by different interest groups at the Public Hearings with the draft bill towards submitting final bill documents in the different houses.
