Lagos To Seal Houses Without Standard Toilets

Published

on

If your house does not have at least a standard toilet, the Lagos State Government will soon seal it off.

Director of Public Enlightenment in Lagos State Ministry of Information and Strategy, Mr. Oluwatoyin Awosika, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Monday that the closure of the houses was to check “unwholesome practices” such as open defecation.

However, the government is embarking on public enlightenment to educate residents on the dangers of open defecation.

“We would continue to educate people on the need to stop open defecation,” Awosika said.

“Again, you don’t blame some of these people for doing these things, so many houses don’t have toilets.

“So many houses don’t have bathrooms, so naturally, you find these people doing it outside.

“Government cannot take all landlords and start inspecting all the houses, but the Ministry of Health, “Wole, Wole’’ Inspection Officers, the houses they go and they find that there are no toilets, they seal them up.

“That is an ongoing thing; their own is just to go round the environment, enter any residential or official premises, inspect; once they see any defect, they give them an ultimatum to put such things into practice.

“And once they are not done, they are sanctioned according to the law.

“The environmental law is clear, every house must have a standard kitchen, standard toilet, standard bathroom, they must have proper drainages around the house and water system.

“The education is endless, we do our own, the health officers do theirs; the Lagos State Environmental and Special Offences Office do education.

“And then when they have done enough education in certain areas, they do the enforcement and the enforcement is, those who run foul are brought before its tribunal,” Awosika said.
