A Nigerian team Thursday visited some locations in the Hazaribagh district to learn about the construction of community toilets which they said they would emulate in their country. The team from the African nation would spend two more days in the district to have first-hand knowledge about building the community toilets.

Our country Nigeria, having the third largest population after China and India, is facing open defecation problem. We have come to Hazaribagh to learn from the district administration how it has succeeded in making community toilets so that the same can be implemented in Nigeria too at the earliest, the head of the 35-member Nigerian team, Bruener (one name) told PTI. An engineer by profession and coming from Abuja in Nigeria, he said their visit has been sponsored by the World bank.
