At the opening of the 3rd National Roundtable Conference on Community-Led Total Sanitation in Katsina, Mrs Sarah Ochekpe, Minister of Water Resources, urged government and communities in Nigeria to embrace Community-Led Total Sanitation to facilitate access to sanitation and hygiene services: “The nation’s sanitation coverage as at 2008 was 32 per cent. Going by this, it means Nigeria is not on track to meeting the MDGs target of achieving 65 per cent coverage on sanitation and hygiene by the year 2015.Hence, there is the need for all to embrace the CLTS approach.”
