President Muhammadu Buhari has signed an executive order ending open defecation in Nigeria by 2025.
The order is to be implemented by the national open defecation free roadmap developed by the federal water resources ministry.
A clean Nigeria campaign secretariat will be established to actualize the target.
Among others, the secretariat will ensure that all public places, such as hospitals, hotels, schools, filling stations, places of worships and market places have accessible latrine and toilets.
Both national and state assemblies are to pass laws that will penalize open defecation.
