 "Eventually, with the support of JCIN, and Let’s Do It Nigeria, led by Olumide Coker. The stories we created together are short, simple, inspiring, and epic. And yes, I started to believe—it’s doable!


"From there on, I had found my flock, and even though I didn’t have the skills to fly, Green Janitors has helped reverberate the mission across the entire Bariga. 


"I successfully led the World Cleanup Day on the 18th September, 2021 at Bariga bringing almost 200 volunteers from different environmental bodies such as Campus Recyclers, Green alliance, Geocycles. Also, various NGOs such as JCIN FCET, NULASS FCET, LYSC, LIRA foundation, Scout Volunteers, Akoka LEO group; Youth bodies across the council from; APC Youth members, youths from wards across the council, NYCN Bariga, AKD volunteers, CDA youths and all market men and women involved.", she said


However, as a result of the World Cleanup Day, millions of people have had a reason to think about their consumer behaviour, the waste they generate and the amount of resources they consume.
