Underage children are not allowed to visit hotels, according to the Kano State Task Force on Tourism Development Levy.
The Task Force has also made it illegal to smoke shisha in the state.
The committee also looked at the state’s legislation governing hotels, restaurants, and event centers.
Baffa Babba Dan-agundi, the Committee’s Chairman, stated this following a meeting with hotel, restaurant, and event center owners to tell them of the new development.
The committee notified them of a new state levy that will assist them in disinfecting their places of business in order to prevent prostitution in the state.
The committee was established in accordance with the state’s tourism statute.
“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.
