Kasady said, Sanitation is so crucial to public health as is crucial to an individuals’ development and one of the indices of knowing whether a community or people is developing is the level of cleanliness.
He noted that sanitation enhances the dignity of a man and at the same time it also prevents so many diseases, even malaria which is very common in Nigeria when we clean our environments and ensure that waste water are properly channeled, there be no room for mosquito to breed and then cause malaria and so many other diseases.
