Speaking during the commissioning, Bello described the provision of the toilets by the Ejibgo LCDA boss as a step in the right direction.

He said:“These toilets are put in place by the government in strategic places for the use of the people. The chairman of Ejigbo LCDA has done this and it should be emulated by other council chairmen in Lagos State. These toilets were not just provided where nobody will use them, but were provided in strategic places where there are traders and other categories of people. This is what we call functional project.”

“It is one thing for a leader to recognise the needs of his people, and it is another thing to take action, our chairman has taken action in this regard,” he said.
