An environmental advocacy Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO), the Light Green Guard (LGG) has protested poor sanitation culture in a state University in the Southeast geopolitical zone, using unique strategies.
Members of the group opted to enter the abandoned waste bins or relax on the heap of refuse to send a strong message to the public that the correct thing should be done.
According to leader of the group, Uche Okafor, the organisation decided to take such pictures to let the public know that the waste bins are not meant for human beings but for refuse. “If people come to where there is a refuse bin and still dump refuse on the ground it means something is wrong. So we are saying that since people have abandoned the container meant for refuse collection and are dumping refuse on the ground, human beings should then occupy the refuse containers if that is what they prefer because the container must be used,” he said.
“How can a right thinking person see a trash can as big as these ones and still decide to dump garbage on the ground? Please people should do the right thing, ” he added.
Okafor called on the public to use the waste bins provided for the purpose of collecting refuse and desist from dumping refuse on the ground.
The pictures which have been circulated in the social media show some of the members eating on refuse dump while others are occupying the empty trash cans.
Members of the public who saw the images have commended the group for using unusual methods to attract attention to poor sanitation in Nigerian universities.
Such photo-based methods are believed to speak louder than words.
The LGG is a group formed by classmates who got inspired after concluding an environmental communication programme in one of the state universities in the Southeast.
