#ACleanerLagos: Here’s How LASG Is Dealing with Public Defecation

INSIDEMAINLAND– The Lagos State Government says it has built 167 public toilets in selected areas of the state to celebrate the World Toilet Day 2022.

According to Kunle Adeshina, Director of Public Affairs at the Ministry of Environment and Water Resources, the state has also registered over 635 public toilet operators to prevent open defecation.

The theme of World Toilet Day 2022 is ‘Sanitation and Groundwater.’

According to the World Health Organization, approximately 3.6 billion people worldwide do not have access to toilets.

Recall that on November 20, 2019, President Muhammadu Buhari (retd.) signed Executive Order 009, titled ‘The Open Defecation-Free Nigeria by 2025 and Other Related Matters Order,’ to end the practice of open defecation in the country.

The Permanent Secretary, Office of Environmental Services, Dr Tajudeen Gaji, who was represented by the Deputy Director of Sanitation Services, Mrs. Janet Balogun, reiterated the government’s commitment to ending open defecation and other sanitation challenges in the state.
