Poor public sanitation is costing Nigeria N500 billion, or 1.3 percent of its gross domestic product, each year, according to Reckitt Benckiser West Africa marketing director Silivrili Oguzhan. Speaking at the grand finale of the Dettol Clean Nigeria Campaign in Lagos, the executive said 80 percent of preventable diseases, such as diarrhea, happens inside the home. Launched in March 2016, the Dettol Clean Nigeria Campaign aims to transform Nigeria into a germ-free country. According to Oguzhan, the campaign has reached more than 1 million people in five of the country’s cities.
