Governor Babatunde Raji Fashola yesterday signed anti-smoking bill into law banning smokers from smoking in public in Lagos.
The bill prohibits smoking in areas which are designated as non-smoking areas, including libraries, museums, nurseries, day care centers, public toilets and facilities with infants.
Offenders will face up to 3 years in jail. Owners of public spaces (clubs, restaurants etc..) will have to ensure no-smoking signs are properly displayed. The fine is N100,320 or 6 months in prison.
