AbstractNigeria is grappling with a rising prevalence of tobacco use, particularly among the youth, leading to significant health and economic burdens. The study "The Economics of Tobacco Control in Nigeria: Modelling the Fiscal and Health Effects of a Tobacco Excise Tax Change in Nigeria" reveals that a substantial upward review of excise tax level on cigarettes alongside a change to the specific tax system yields the most significant gains in public health (measured by reductions in cigarette consumption and smoking prevalence) as well fiscal revenue (measured by increase in excise tax and other government revenues). Therefore, it is recommended that Nigeria implements tobacco control policy interventions that impose higher tax levels and specific tax systems.
