Endy Edeson

Good decision you made.

Ogunbekun M Imoleayo

Simply.... they want to ban smoking generally....not style style...
some bars accept smokers...which is their own Prerogative...

personally I dislike smokers but I let them do their things as far as I'm not disturbed

@Imoleayo: What most people don't know is that smoking can lead to serious health issues such as "kidney failure" if it is not compatible with their bodies.

@David & Becky: Is easy to make policies but to implement is the problem in Nigeria. Even with this campaign, you will still find people smoking in public places

Mac David

We don't need such policy bro ..they should make policy on how to better the life of every Nigerian economically and financially not smoking things please.

Edwin Scott

They should make a fin if you smoke you pay 20k with that the rate of smokers will reduce in the country.
