Polity Magazine, published by the Encyclopedia Nigeria Limited, has shared a post commemorating the celebration of World Toilet Day. The designated day exists to inform, engage and inspire people to take action toward achieving the goal of having a toilet in every house of the world.

The Polity Magazine, a Nigerian publication deals with a plethora of topics in their various editions. These topics include health and sanitation, lifestyle, fashion, gender and women empowerment. The Polity Magazine also provides coverage on several other issues.


On November 21, 2022 The magazine shared a post on their facebook page commemorating the “World Toilet Day.” The day is celebrated every year on November 19, 2022.

After Singapore had tabled the resolution, the UN General Assembly declared World Toilet Day an official day of UN in 2013. (This was singapore’s first resolution before the UN’s General Assembly of 193 member states).

Before that, World Toilet Organization (a Singapore-based NGO) in 2001 unofficially established the world toilet day.

UN-Water is the official convener of World Toilet Day. The organizers maintain the official World Toilet Day website and chooses a particular theme each year.

As per Wikipedia, In the year 2020 the theme for the day was “Sustainable sanitation and climate change”. In 2019 the theme of the celebration was ‘Leaving no one behind’. This is the central theme of the Sustainable Development Goals. Pieces in previous years included, nature-based solutions, wastewater, toilets and jobs, and toilets and nutrition.

Communications, campaigns and other activities mark World Toilet Day. United Nations entities, international organizations, local civil society organizations and volunteers plan the events of the celebrations. This is done to create awareness and inspire action on the issue.


Polity Magazine believes toilets are essential because access to a safe bathroom positively impacts public health, human dignity, and personal safety. This is especially true for the world’s female population.

Sanitation systems which do not safely treat excreta (feces) allow the spread of disease. Serious soil-transmitted and waterborne diseases include cholera, diarrhea, typhoid, dysentery and schistosomiasis.

On the occasion of World Toilet Day, The polity Magazine has urged every government to ensure that toilet facilities are available to everyone.
