WHO says that tobacco causes 30,000 deaths in Nigeria every year
The World Health Organization (WHO) said yesterday that smoking-related illnesses kill about 30,000 Nigerians each year.

This is because the Federal Government has started a program that will make sure accurate data about activities to stop people from smoking and the number of people who have diseases is posted on a dashboard to help with efforts to stop people from smoking.

The WHO Country Representative for Nigeria, Dr. Walter Kazuli Molumbo, talked about how scary it is that noncommunicable diseases kill more people in Nigeria than infectious diseases. He said this at an event in Abuja for World No Tobacco Day this year.

He said, "Nearly 30,000 people die every year from illnesses caused by smoking." This is a lot more than the 3,000 deaths caused by COVID19 in the three years it was around.

He said that smoking is a silent killer that causes cancer, long-term lung diseases, and other illnesses.

Molumbo said that this year's event with the theme "Tobacco: A threat to our environment" was a chance for Nigeria to make up for the times when it didn't do enough to stop people from smoking tobacco.

On the other hand, Molumbo praised the federal government for trying to stop the bad things that happen to people who smoke.

He was especially glad that an emergency inter-ministerial committee had been set up to help the Fastrack action on advocacy and sensitization program.

Molumbo said that Nigeria might be able to join the global effort to stop people from smoking at the next United Nations meeting in September.

From Country Lead Development Gateway's Seember Ali: An IREX Venture talked about how important the dashboard for keeping track of tobacco use is. He said that the initiative, which is being paid for by the WHO and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, is meant to try to fill in the gaps in data about how smoking hurts people in Nigeria.

She said that the goal was to make a place where people could find all the information they needed in one place. This would help people who want to stop people from smoking run a proper and effective campaign to stop people from smoking.

The Executive Director of Corporate Accountability and Public Participation Africa (CAPPA), Akinbode Oluwafemi, said that one of the most important things about the tobacco control dashboard is that it will help advocates work with policy makers and other stakeholders to reduce the health risks caused by tobacco in Nigeria in a big way.

The Minister of State for Health, Senator Olorunnimbe Mamora, also spoke. He said that the number of smokers around the world is going up.

He said that the WHO says that the tobacco epidemic is one of the biggest threats to public health that the world has ever seen. It kills more than 8 million people every year, which is more than half of the people who use it.

The Minister also said that more than 7 million of these deaths are directly caused by smoking, while about 1.2 million are caused by non-smokers being exposed to second-hand smoke, or what some people call "passive smoking."

Mamorah said that smoking is bad for the environment because it makes global warming worse.

Growing and making tobacco hurts the environment in many ways.

distributed and used.

He said, "Outside of the environment, tobacco use, including exposure to secondhand smoke, has caused 12 percent of all heart disease deaths and is the second leading cause of cardiovascular disease, after high blood pressure.

"Even though these numbers are bad for smokers, it's important to remember that secondhand smoke kills almost 900,000 people every year. In addition to heart disease and high blood pressure, smoking and secondhand smoke can cause noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) like stroke, cancer, diabetes, and chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases.

"According to the 2012 Global Adult Tobacco Survey (GATS), 5.6% (4.5 million) of Nigerians ages 15 and up use tobacco products, and 3.9% (3.1 million) of these people are current smokers."
