  Topic: Assessment of healthy environments in Nigeria: a case study of Ota, Ogun State, Nigeria 1. Are you familiar with the environment problem in Ota?  Yes. Haven lived in Ota for over ten years 2. Based on your professional expertise, how healthy is the urban environment in Ota? Assessment of how healthy an urban environment is better conducted through certain equipment that were manufactured to measure such issues as air quality, water quality, noise level, etc. However, from my professional experience, I will want to argue that an urban environment as Ota can not be so healthy. This is likely to be so, if one considers the large presence of manufacturing industries in the town, and the weakness of most industrial regulatory agencies in controlling industrial pollutions in Nigeria. The likelihood of the industries in Ota are polluting the air, water and land in and around Ota is very high, It is commonly known the industries as asbestos factories, metal manufacturing industries, are likely to produce certain dangerous elements that might be injurious to human life. 3. According to your profession expertise what can be done to improve it? 1. The government should improve the capacity of industry regulation agency to monitor and control the emission from the industries 2. Every industry in and around Ota should be made to prepare Environmental Impact Assessment of their production process 3. Sources of noise, such as churches and mosques should be controlled 4. Greater attention should be paid to tree-planting 5. Environmental sanitation should be enforced 6, Access to clean and safe potable water Discuss these indicators and how they affect health from the perspective of your profession.
