ANOCA hosts World Clean Up Day in Lagos
The Association of National Olympic Committees of Africa (ANOCA) and a global network organisation for the promotion of a clean environment – Let’s Do It World (LDIW), will tomorrow at the Lagos National Stadium join other interest groups to hold the annual World Clean Up Day (WCD).
According to the Nigeria Olympic Committee (NOC), the World Clean Up Day is a global clean up action uniting millions of people in promoting a cleaner planet for humanity.
“The target is to engage a percentage of the national population to pick up mismanaged waste from nature in one day, the aim being to draw attention to the problem of waste management, create public awareness and influence choices of individuals and organizations on best methods of managing waste.
“ANOCA is encouraging all National Olympic Committees of Africa to join other stakeholders of interest such as local municipalities, Ministries of Health, waste managers, and departments of the environment in celebrating the day.”
NOC President, Habu Gumel, is the chairman of ANOCA’s jury for the organisation of the World Clean-Up Day, where the best performing National Olympic Committee will be awarded a prize.
