0

The Federal Ministries of Finance, Environment and other critical stakeholders in the environment sector, on Monday, overwhelmingly rejected a Bill, which seeks to establish the Clean Nigeria Agency and prohibit open urination and defecation in the country.

The Bill titled: “A Bill for an Act to establish the Clean Nigeria Agency for the purpose, among others, to prohibit Open Urination/Open Defecation in order to keep Nigeria clean and disease free and other matters connected thereto, 2021” was sponsored by Senator Clifford Ordia (Edo Central).

The ministries and other critical stakeholders made their position known through their presentation during a one-day public hearing on the Bill organised by the Senate Committee on Water Resources.

They premised their opposition to the Bill on the need to prevent further proliferation of government agencies, paucity of funds and duplication of functions.
