The initiator of the global campaign to eradicate the scourge of malaria in Africa and the President of Ned Nwoko Foundation, Hon Prince Ned Nwoko has hinted that the clean up Nigeria project proposal will create about 3million jobs for youths across the country in the recycling industry.
Hon Prince (Dr) Ned Nwoko dropped the hint in his acceptance speech after he was honoured with DISTINGUISH SERVICE AWARD by Delta State University, Abraka, Delta State, on Saturday October 3rd.
The Antarctica explorer was honoured by the Ivory tower in recognition of his remarkable accomplishments in life and his pioneering roles towards the eradication of the scourge of malaria in Africa.
Whilst giving details of how the jobs will be created, Hon Prince (Dr) Ned Nwoko said, “part of the proposal (to clean up Nigeria) is that in every Local Government Areas of the country, there will be a recycling Plant and at the recycling plants there will be alot of jobs for the youths, we are talking about nothing less than 3million jobs to be created for the youth because people will operate the plants, people will select the waste and people will pack the recycled products for use. So most of our wastes that would have been dumped in our environment will be recycled for use and there are many things that we can get from the recycled products.
So what will have in the next few years is that there will be a regime of cleanliness. They say that cleanliness is next to godliness. This is what I am advocating.” Prince Ned Nwoko stated.
