The Cross River State Commissioner of Health, Dr. Inyang Asibong has adviced citizens of the State to embrace healthy lifestyles that will in the long run, protect their lives.

The Commissioner who spoke with CrossRiverWatch on the marking of the World No Tobacco Day, said it was necessary that citizens of the State compliment the effort of Government by staying off tobacco which she says is a killer.

“On our part as the State Government we have embarked on campaigns and advocacy on the need for the citizens to stay off tobacco and to a large extent other harmful substances.” She said.

Dr. Inyang said the theme for this year’s celebration; “Get Ready for Plain Packaging” is targeted at “de-marketing” the product with heightened campaign to prohibit the use of “logos, colors, brand images” on promotional materials so as to reduce the attractiveness of the product.

She said that tobacco is a major cause of cancer globally and in turn reduces the capacity of a people to progress.
