Chairman, Interim Management Committee of Zangon Kataf Local Government Area of Kaduna State, Dominic Gambo Yahaya, said yesterday that owners of houses without toilets in the area would be sanctioned.
Flagging-off the fourth round of the 2012 immunization exercise, Yahaya urged landlords in the area that are yet to provide functional toilets in their houses to do so.
He said that maintaining a healthy environment could check the outbreak of diseases such as polio, diarrhoea, vomiting and cholera, which according to him are responsible for the high rate of maternal/child mortality.
“We must fight environmental diseases. We are pleased with the turnout at this event because the importance of immunising children against killer diseases cannot be over emphasized”, he said.
