Lagos State Government Constructs 345 Public Toilets

No fewer than 345 public toilets have been constructed across the state in a bid to tackle open defecation, according to an official.

The Commissioner for the Environment and Water Resources, Mr Tunji Bello, disclosed this during the 2021 World Toilet Day celebration held on Friday.

Bello was represented at the event by the Special Adviser on Drainage and Water Resources, Mr Joe Igbokwe.

He said, “The state has constructed 345 public toilets in strategic locations across the metropolis, while 615 privately-owned toilets operators have also been registered.

“These feats were results of a resilient strategy developed as a documented commitment to improving the quality of life of Lagos residents.

“It is important to note that Nigeria presently occupies the topmost level in the ladder of open defecation and that each state in the country is expected to domesticate the Federal Government declaration towards achieving open defecation-free status by 2025.”
