I started my day back at the office just like any other civil servant, prepared to resume my duties. However, as I made my way to the office, I noticed an unusual crowd gathered outside the secretariat building. Curiosity piqued, I continued walking and was pleasantly surprised to see a group of energetic youths with brooms, mops, and buckets of water, all actively cleaning and scrubbing the floors and surroundings

A clean environment is essential for promoting good health. As we all know, pollution, litter, and improper waste disposal can lead to a wide range of health issues, including respiratory problems, allergies, and skin diseases. By keeping our surroundings clean, we can reduce the risk of exposure to harmful pollutants and contaminants, thereby safeguarding our health and that of future generations

Seeing the enthusiasm and dedication of these young people brought a smile to my face, as I knew the secretariat was long overdue for proper cleaning.

The cobwebs, dirt, and dust that had accumulated over time would no longer be the first thing to greet visitors and employees as they entered the building.

It is truly a new dawn by the present administration of Alh. Ododo Ahmed Usman and the efforts to start on a clean note were evident.

An untidy environment dose not only affects the natural beauty of our world but also disrupts the delicate balance that sustains life on Earth.

Nevertheless, a clean environment also has positive effects on mental and emotional well-being.

Studies have also shown that exposure to natural environments can reduce stress, anxiety, and depression while promoting feelings of tranquility and well-being. By keeping our surroundings clean and green, we create spaces that are conducive to relaxation, excellent job delivery, and mental rejuvenation thereby enhancing our overall quality of life.

I felt a sense of joy knowing that the new administration valued the cleanliness of the environment. It was clear that they understood the importance of maintaining a clean space not just for aesthetics but for the well-being and health of everyone who would be working there. I was certain that many other civil servants would share the same happiness and appreciation for this initiative.

I commend the new administration for prioritizing sanitation and cleanliness, not just within the secretariat but throughout the entire state. It is inspiring to see the governor’s commitment to the people’s well-being and the overall improvement of living conditions in the state.

It was a promising start, and I am optimistic about the positive changes that were set to follow under this new leadership.

As individuals, we have a responsibility to take care of our surroundings and ensure that we contribute to a clean and healthy environment. This can be achieved through simple actions such as proper waste disposal, recycling, and reducing our carbon footprint.

By working together to preserve and protect our environment, we can create a cleaner, healthier, and more sustainable world for ourselves and future generations.

In conclusion, the need for a clean environment is undeniable, as it is essential for promoting human health, preserving biodiversity, and enhancing overall well-being. By recognizing the importance of environmental cleanliness and taking proactive steps to maintain it, we can create a brighter and healthier future for all.

Let us all join hands in the noble effort of the government to protect and cherish our planet for our overall well-being
