Open Defecation: Governor Fayemi Declares Emergency In Ekiti State Water Sector

Governor Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti State has declared emergency in the state’s water sanitation and hygiene sector, stressing that open defecation will be eradicated before 2030.

Fayemi, who lamented that the state ranked second in open defecation in the country, said no state needed the emergency declared by the Federal Government than Ekiti. He said the emergency was in line with steps taken by President Muhammadu Buhari, who had initiated similar policy under Water Supply Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) in partnership with the World Bank.
