KWSG seals building for practicing open defecation



Kwara State Environmental Protection Agency (KWEPA), in furtherance of the fight against open defecation, which is a threat to environmental health, has sealed a residential building along Agba-dam area of the state.

KWEPA General Manager, Alhaji Sa’ad Ayuba Dan-musa, gave the directive to the concerned department after the concerned landlord failed to adhere to the notices that had been previously issued to him.

While addressing the tenants, Deputy Director, Environment, Mrs Adedotun Olawumi Taiwo , who heads the Waste and Sanitation Department, said “the building is inhabitable for you as there are no toilet facilities in place and it is detrimental to the health of everyone of you and we are here because it is the duty of the state government to watch out for the health of the citizens and residents of the state”.

She further stated that the landlord of the building does not have the interest of the tenants at heart because if he does he would have provided toilet facilities and a good soak away system.

Adedotun therefore advised the tenants to look out for standard toilet facilities in houses they may want to rent before paying in the nearest future as open defecation is one of the major ways by which diseases are contacted.
