With the recent cholera outbreak in the 30 states of the federation, including neighbouring Lagos, and considering the Eid-el-kabir festivities, the Ogun State Government has announced certain precautionary measures to residents to prevent any possible outbreak in the state.
Special Adviser to Governor Dapo Abiodun on Media and Strategy, Hon. Kayode Akinmade made this known in a statement on Saturday.
He explained that the Governor is seriously concerned about the development and the need to protect the people in the State, considering the proximity of Ogun to Lagos and the degree of interactions between the two states.
According to the statement, precautionary measures, including the following, have been put in place:
“All houses MUST have toilets. Each house without a toilet should identify a room to be converted to a toilet. ” Residents are given three to six months of grace for compliance.
“All petrol stations MUST have functional public toilets with running water as part of their corporate social responsibilities.
“All garages and parks MUST have functional toilets with running water.
“All markets MUST have functional public toilets with running water.
“Mechanic villages MUST have functional toilet with running water.
“All schools (public and private) should have public toilets with running water.”
In addition to those measures, residents of the State were also advised to take the following measures as a way of galvanising themselves against the disease.
“Drink safe water that is boiled or chlorinated; wash your hands with soap and water after visiting the toilet and before handling food; wash fruits and vegetables properly with safe water before eating and for preparing food; cook food properly. Buy and eat only hot food; use water from reliable sources, among other precautions.”
The statement added that the Ministry of Environment would see to the strict compliance of all the measures as violators would be made to face the wrath of law accordingly.
