FG tells Police to ban smoking of Shisha

The Minister of Health, Prof. Isaac Adewole has order the Nigerian police  force to enforce ban on Shisha smoking in the public.

Prof. Isaac Adewole was speaking during a press conference on Monday 3rd June, 2018 to mark Tobacco day, where he said, Let me stress that the ban on tobacco products with characterising flavours is still in place and the ban includes shisha because it has flavour.

I, therefore, urge the Consumer Protection Council and the law enforcement agencies to intensify arrest of defaulters.”

The Minister further stated, “Recently, the Standards Organisation of Nigeria which is responsible for creating the national industrial standard, convened a technical committee meeting with respect to the tobacco standard and the subject of shisha was discussed like any other tobacco product.

“And the new industry standards are undergoing the process now so it is not an illegal product now but soon the SON will come up with what the final standard will be.”
