Speaking first at the celebration of World Toilets Day, UNICEF Chief Sanitary, Water and Hygiene Officer, Kannan Nadar, described the situation as very critical.
He said, “Nigeria has about 100 million people without access to toilets, this is worrisome, as it is possible for everyone to own toilet. It doesn’t cost much.
Sanitation and toilets are fundamental human rights. Since it is possible for everyone to own toilet, it is not justified for people to die of diseases related infections due to open defecation.”
