As part of the plans to promote environmental hygiene and cleanliness, the What More Can I Give Initiative has commenced its #NoToPlasticWaste campaign to educate members of the public. The group took its education to Mushin community, Lagos Mainland, today, Wednesday, March 18, 2020, just after it had visited Yaba, Obalende, and Lekki amongst others.
The group comprising young individuals with the vision not just to contribute their quota to a country whose system they are beginning to understand, but to bring to actualization self-reliance of young adults while ensuring capitalization of their dreams.
The group noted that it is key to play a part in enlightening the public to be environmentally conscious especially with Lagos preparation for a long rainy season.
According to Olufemi Ibitoye, the convener of the initiative, “In every system’s growth and development, the government plays a vital role, but leaving it solely to the government has never been a solution; never has, never would. No lash at the government because quite understandably, there are a lot to be done. But as much as you can’t do everything individually without the bedrock of the country: the government, you can cover a very large extent once you set your mind to do so. This is the idea behind the sub project.”
Olufemi further maintained that the group intends to do more after this week, by actively engaging different stakeholders from NURTW to the market women, landlord associations, community associations and more.
