We shall be deploying our resources including the Hypo toilet cleaner to keep the toilet sparkling, attractive and germs free. By so doing, people who make use of the facilities can have a positive view of public toilet and develop a taste for using it when there is need for it.”

“Today we want to build people’s trust in using public toilet facilities, discouraging the act of indiscriminate defecation in open places while working towards the objective of a hygienically safe environment for all.

The Director, Health Education, Lagos State Ministry of Health, Shola Hassan commended Hypo on its partnership with the state government in discouraging the culture of open defecation, unhygienic practice among the people thereby keeping infectious diseases around the environment at bay.
