The Federal Capital Territory (FCT) is seeking the support of the private sector to end open defecation in the territory, FCT Minister Mohammed Bello has said.
Bello said this on Friday during the FCT Special Day at the ongoing Enugu International Trade Fair.
The minister, who was represented by the Head, Business in FCT, Mrs. Ikwubiela Adom, said that the FCT administration was focused on making the area clean and healthy through increased waste management strategy.
Bello said that the administration had the commitment to eradicate open defecation thus, inviting the support of the private sector to achieve that.
He said that the strides in the provision of infrastructure had made the FCT one of the safest and most secure investment destinations in the country.
“The FCT is investing in the provision of further infrastructure such as link roads between the urban and rural centres of the territory.
“We have also intensified efforts in ensuring easy vehicular movement within the territory through the introduction of planned bus routes.
“This is an area we are soliciting private investors to complement us,” he said.
