The Association of Public Toilets in Bauchi Local Government Area has announced a 100 per cent increment in charges for using its facilities.

Mr Ibrahim Kabo, chairman of the association, made the announcement in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Bauchi on Thursday.

He said charges for defecation in the facilities increased to N200 from the initial N100, just as taking bath with hot and cold water rose to N200 as against the earlier N100.

Kabo said the upward review was necessitated by sharp increase in prices of items used in maintaining the facilities.

“We use soap, detergent, antibacterial agents, petrol, deodorant, cream, buckets, brooms , dustbins, toilet paper, among others to make the toilets convenient for the public.

“On the other hand, we have increased workers’ transportation fares; their role is very important because they are in charge of maintenance and taking care of the facilities.

“These are what led to the price increase in the public toilets in the metropolis,” the chairman said.

Reacting, a client, Aliyu Danjuma, said the upward review was unfortunate, but understandable.

“I don’t blame them on the increase; everything has gone up, so you don’t expect less than what they are charging,” he said.

NAN correspondent observed that the new charges are boldly written on the walls of the facilities. (NAN)
