Mr Eazi and Timi Dakolo have been appointed as anti-tobacco ambassadors by The Federal Government. The music stars were appointed along with Saadatu Aliyu of the World Economic Forum's Abuja Global Shapers Hub.
A statement by the Ministry of Health said their appointment was to leverage on their influence with young Nigerians.
The appointment was part of the announcement by the ministry of a planned launch on June 15 in Abuja of a six months national tobacco control communications campaign.
According to the ministry's statement, "The Tobacco-Free Nigeria' campaign, aims to educate Nigerians on the NTC Act 2015 and raise awareness on the dangers of tobacco smoke.
"The campaign will leverage on social media and offline interactions to reach young Nigerians, especially second-hand smokers who need to be aware of the ban of smoking in public places and protect themselves."
