    It’s not tobacco polluting the air, it’s faulty tankers and trailers on terrible roads, open burning of garbage and generators. This campaign is a joke. The FG is trying to deflect attention from its responsibilities. Give is constant electricity and adequate infrastructure.

    so what does an ambassador for anti-tobacco do? how do you measure their impact in terms of life they will change? before them what has been done before to combat the issue (if this is actually an issue) lets be serious for once and stop throwing money away to celebrities that keep getting richer with all manner of gimmicks in names of ambassadorial positions!.

    Often times, these celebs dont do crap when appointed till their contract expire!
    Federal ministry of health for christ sake can channel money into important stuff! an immediate the issue that need such emergency solution is the price of common menstruation pad! solve that first!

    Why won,t mr eazi be appointed as an ambassador, when he is dating otedola’s daughter, he does not deserve the appointment, he does not appreciate where he comes from and he is not proud of his root, if jidenna was made an ambassador in nigeria, he so deserves it, he knows where he comes from, and he is proud of his root, he can tell you confidently that he is nigerian, but this mr eazi he keeps denying nigeria, like he is not from ogun state, he should go and become an ambassador in ghana.
