Federal Gov Wants All States to end Open Defecation by 2025.Can these be Accomplished In Nigeria?

The Federal Government has Mandated all the 36 states in Nigeria to carry out the Executive Order 009 that was ordered and signed by President Muhammadu Buhari to end "Open Defecation" in Nigeria by 2025, that is to say before the end of 2025 all state of the federation must have removed all defecation in the state and must have banned it in the state with some penalties that are yet to be known if spotted. It was approved by the Federal Executive Council (FEC) last year.

The seriousness of this project was seen when the Minister of Water Resources, Engr. Suleiman H. Adamu made a speech concerning this in Abuja and met virtually with the 36 states and F. C. T Coordinators through Video Conference of the 'Clean Nigeria: Use the Tiolet Campaign.

The minister urged the Coordinators of the various states to work fast In meeting the "National Action Plan On Water Sanitation and Hygiene" (WASH) that will bring about the end of Open Defecation before the target year of 2025. That is to say, there are some systems that will be taken from now till before the end of 2025.

The Steps are yet to be revealed soon as the minister mentioned in his speech.

Some States claimed to have begun the Project, as was heard by the Coordinators of each State;

1. Cross River State Coordinator, Elder Eyo Effiong, who said that their state has began taken adequate measures against COVID-19 pandemic by updating its "WASH"(Water Sanitation and Hygiene) by Opening free sanitation centers where people can defecate without lowering it around.

2. Bauchi State Coordinator, Sabo Adamu, told the meeting that jingles had been developed and aired throughout the state to sensitize the populace against the dangers and prevention of COVID -19 pandemic. He explained that various water schemes had been rehabilitated while their Open Defecation Free Roadmap was developed in 2019 and has started its work.

3. Akwa Ibom State Coordinator, Idongesit Sunday Ido, said the state had provided sanitation facilities in the public places to combat COVID -19 pandemic.

Only these three States have spoken concerning its involvement in the Project.

Earlier in his welcome address, the Director of Water Quality Control and Sanitation in the ministry, Mr. Emmanuel Awe, said that various meeting will continue to be held to afford the minister an opportunity to get firsthand information from the states’ delegates on their activities at making their respective states achieve Open Defecation Free status.
