The Kano State Task Force on Tourism Development Levy has made it illegal for underage minors to visit hotels and for men and women to swim in the state’s pools.
Shisha smoking, lesbianism, and LGBT behaviors are also prohibited in the state, according to the government.
After a meeting with the proprietors of hotels, restaurants, and event centers in the state, the Committee’s Chairman, Baffa Babba Dan-agundi, informed the press.
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 term 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 practices.
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.
