Law: Ekiti, Nigeria Bans Public Smoking

The enjoyment of cigars is under fire on a global level, not just in the United States. As more and more places legalize pot, governments take aim at tobacco smokers, which in turn affects the cigar community.

Ekitiri, Nigeria is home to 2.7 million people and is in western part of the country. It’s government is a dictatorship, and the country has begun the enforcement of a law prohibiting smoking in public places. The move was put in place with support from an American company, Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids in Washington state.

The commissioner stated that the rights of non-smokers needed to be protected. This comes despite a recent report stating that there is no proof of second-hand smoke.
