NTDC partners DMT to arrest filth


NTDC partners DMT to arrest filth
Pursuant to its Environmental Tourism programme, the Nigerian Tourism Development Corporation (NTDC) is collaborating with moveable conveniences manufacturer/merchants DMT Mobile Toilets to arrest filth. A statement from Nigeria’s apex tourism regulatory agency says the NTDC is poised to tackle the issue of environmental tourism heads-on and has enlisted DMT Mobile Toilets to “sanitize our environment by making use of mobile conveniences at public places”.
The facility, we gathered, has practically proven a great relief to countless party goers and organizers by offering conveniences in situ. According to the release, the Corporation in conjunction with DMT Mobile Toilets plans to spread mobile toilets across the length and breadth of Nigeria to ease pressure on people, thus discouraging the answering of nature’s call at odd spots.
The statement adds that the NTDC, which is saddled with the responsibility of marketing and promoting tourism in Nigeria, has entered into this partnership because it frowns at the filth-ridden Nigerian environment partly caused by lack of functional and decent conveniences at countless public places.
Interestingly, a model NTDC/DMT Mobile Toilet is already in place at the Tourism Village, the Corporation’s headquarters in Abuja. In line with the NTDC’s perceived universal best practice principle, this model little-room boasts, among others; an in-built air-conditioner, a chemically operated flushing system, and an FM radio unit. NTDC sources said the corporation was keen to ensure comfort for its users in keeping with its tourism-friendly stance.
