Ogun State Government has threatened that landlords who fail to provide toilet facilities would forfeit their houses.

The government said the development was part of efforts to tame the challenge of open defecation in the state.

Speaking in Abeokuta, Commissioner for Environment, Ola Oresanya, said henceforth, old houses with collapsed toilets without provision for new ones and new houses built without toilets will be forfeited to the state government.

He warned landlords to either construct toilets in those houses or convert rooms to serve as toilets or risk forfeiting their homes to the state government.

According to him, the state government after several warnings and abatement notices spread over several months have given them enough period for compliance, hence any landlord that refused to comply will have to face the consequence.

“We have given the landlords a period of compliance, so we are not ready to persuade anyone of them again to do the needful.

“For avoidance of doubt, we are now making it public again that any old or new houses without toilet will be forfeited to the government after all the environmental laws of the state allowed the government to take over such homes in public interest while the landlords may be charged for endearing the lives of people living in his or her community,” he added.

Oresanya therefore called on all residents of the state, Community Development Associations CDAs and Central Development Councils to cooperate with the state government as it will soon begin to carry out the forfeiture exercise as part of its efforts at making the state open defecation free.
