You’ll be Fined or Jailed in Nigeria for Smoking at these Public Places

The federal government has set a fine of N50,000 or possible jail term for smoking in certain public places in Nigeria.  The “Clean Air Campaign” was set up by the ministry of health to protect and promote the citizens’ right to health, life, physical integrity and safety.
