“Learners in school’s litter and dirty their school environments only to return the following morning to waste instructional hours to tidy up before academic work begins.”

Mr. Mustapha said “as the school club begins to take shape as expected, we shall introduce the one class one dust bin policy. This is intended to provide dust bines to beneficiary schools to provide the basis for an enabling environment for proper sanitation practices.”
