Buhari to issue Executive Order on sanitation — Minister


Suleiman Adamu Minister of Water Resources has said that President Muhammadu Buhari will soon issue an Executive Order directing all federal agencies to key into sanitation in the country. Adamu said this when he met with the National Task Group on Sanitation in his office on Friday in Abuja.

He said that the Federal Government had expressed its willingness to addressing the challenges in the Water, Sanitation and Hygiene Sector of the country. “I will like to say that there is going to be an Executive Order by Mr President that all federal agencies must key into sanitation. “All institutions must have proper toilets facilities and at the state levels, we are trying to get all state governors to also meet the requirements.

“This will ensure that commercial buildings open up toilets facilities; this includes working with the private sector to achieve this very goal. “Also our problem is, we need to get the National Assembly to be involved to ensure that they give particular attention to sanitation budgets as they are not really interested in it,” he said.
