Obaseki to unveil campaign on hygiene, anti- open defecation


EDO State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, will on Friday, July 16, 2021, unveil the Clean Nigeria: Use The Toilet campaign to drive sanitation and end open defecation in the state.

A statement issued by the Director, Administra­tion and Supplies, Small Town and Rural Water Supply and Sanitation Agency, Eigbe A. Endurance, said Obaseki would launch the campaign at the Government House, Benin City.

Eigbe said the state government has continued to provide more schools, markets, health centres in rural communitie­s with clean water and toilet facilities that would make the environmen­t safe for residents across the state.

The Obaseki- led administra­tion collaborat­ed with the United Nations Children’s Fund ( UNICEF) in deepening the impact of projects executed through the Water, Sanitation and Hygiene ( WASH) programme to ensure sustainabl­e sanitation in the state.
