In response to suspected and confirmed reports of cholera outbreaks in some parts of Nigeria, a sanitation expert has called for intensified measures to improve hygiene practices in schools.

Mr Benson Attah, the National Coordinator, Society for Water and Sanitation (NEWSAN), told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that school management authorities need to immediately increase their level of alertness and intensify cholera awareness.

He urged local government councils with reported outbreaks to disseminate hygiene messages to all pupils and students in affected areas.

Attah advised students to share the messages with their families, neighbours, and communities to ensure widespread awareness and preventive action.

“This outbreak should serve as an early warning to the councils and states yet unaffected,” Attah said.

He underscored the necessity for proactive measures even in regions not currently experiencing outbreaks.

“The recommended hygiene practices include; regular hand washing with safe, clean water and soap, especially before eating.’’ (NAN)
