Lagosians are to get modern public toilet facilities at key locations across the metropolis, the “Vanguard” newspaper reports. The project, overseen by the state ministry of the environment, is part of broad efforts to clean up the metropolis and transform it into a modern “centre of excellence”.
Facilities are being built at Dopemu bridge, Obanikoro and Toyota and Ijesha bus stops among other places. The facilities, which include ten toilets for women and ten for men, are reportedly at different stages of construction; some have already been roofed and plastered while work on others has only just begun. It is not clear whether people will have to pay to use the new facilities.
