I think this is great enterprise, and I would be happy to see more of such projects. If indeed DMT is offering safe, hygenic services, which improves sanitation conditions in Nigeria, I actually wouldn’t mind government subsidising this venture at, say, 75% or even 100%. I mean, think of all the people that would benefit by having better sanitation and, ultimately, a cleaner, more hygenic place to live.

What one of the people said in the video is absolutely right: there about 150 million people in that country, and even if 10% of the people in Nigeria do patronize the business, it provides 15 million people (about 4 Minnesotas put together) with much needed service.
