Katsina Allocates Funds for Toilets Construction

Abuja — THE Katsina State Government has set aside N22 million to construct more than 40 toilets in public places to help address the problem of people relieving themselves in the open.

The Executive Director, State Environmental and Protection Agency (SEPA), Yunusa Charanchi, who disclosed this in the state capital Katsina, said open defecation was responsible for some of the diseases being witnessed in the state.

He said the public toilets would go long way in addressing the situation.

He said the toilets would be constructed at motor parks, markets and other public places.

Charanchi said government had cleared site and released funds for the construction of the public toilets, and that the effort would complement existing public toilets in the state SEPA, he said, would be responsible for the maintenance of the facilities.

He thus called on people to ensure they used public toilets and desisted from open defecation due to the health implications involved.

Meanwhile, the official said the state was facing challenges from hawkers who operated along some major roads saying this resulted in a dirty environment and unnecessary congestion.

He said the issue was among the reasons why the state introduced end-of-the month sanitation.

The measure, he said, was introduced in order to ensure proper cleaning of the environment, particularly the major roads.
