Water fuels dispute in Nigeria's Lagos

Government plans for a private partnership to ensure water supply in the city has many up in arms.

    Many people in Lagos, Nigeria's largest city, do not have proper access to water.

    The government says it has a solution in a private sector partnership, but activists are up in arms. They say that this will lead to price hikes and the exclusion of civil society groups.
