Radio Report: Lagos takles wastewater epidemic
The Lagos State Government is seeking the partnership of relevant international organisations and other bodies to control the spread of cholera, diarrhoea and other diseases, through the provision of modern facilities for treating large volumes of waste water generated in the state.
Governor Akinwunmi Ambode, who made this known at a recent summit, blamed frequent disease epidemics in the state on indiscriminate disposal of sewage and other domestic and industrial liquid wastes, which he said must be controlled to safeguard the health of the citizenry.
Correspondent Innocent Onoh was there.
