…Is Your Toilet Clean? Tell Us About Your Toilet…

…Over 100 Million Nigerians Lack Access To Toilets…


Nigeria has about one hundred 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 to open defecation.

Staggering 37 million people still practice open defecation, nearly 100,000 children under the age of five dying of diarrhea in Nigeria every year as a result of poor sanitation and water.

Without a private toilet, women and girls are vulnerable to violence, intimidation and indignity. Women and girls living in Nigeria without toilet facilities spend about 3.1 billion hours each year finding a place to go to toilet in the open.

Sanitation has always been the most neglected and off-track of the MDGs, with little funding, resources or political will to address the crisis. There has been little or no progress towards the agreed target of allocating 0.5 per cent of GDP to sanitation.
