Kano Govt Bans Shisha Smoking, Stops Underage Children From Entering Hotels

The Kano State Task Force on Tourism Development Levy has banned underage children from going to hotels.

The Task Force has also banned shisha smoking in the state.

The committee also reviewed the laws regulating hotels, restaurants and event centres in the state.

The Chairman of the Committee, Baffa Babba Dan-agundi, said this after a meeting with the owners of hotels, restaurants and event centres to inform them of the new development.

The committee informed them of a new levy by the state government that will help in sanitizing their places of business for the purpose of avoiding acts of prostitution in the state.

The committee was constituted under the state tourism law.

“Part of our terms of reference is to stop underage children from entering hotels without their parents, banning of shisha smoking, swimming between men and women in the pool, lesbianism and gay practises.

“The committee will further oversee the activities of DJs at wedding ceremonies and event centres. All events centres should be closed by 11pm,” he said.

Shortly after a meeting at the Government House, Governor Abdullahi Ganduje commissioned more than 8 cars for the conduct of the committee’s assignment.

The Committee Chairman assured the governor of their total commitment in the discharge of their responsibilities.
