“We also helped to safeguard the state through our various activities from flood which normally characterized every rainy season in the state.
“We are also replicating same in the states we are working now because we feel as a company which has benefitted from those states, we should also contribute our quota to reducing the unemployment rate in the states, hence we want to recruit into our company youths that will be deployed to areas where we are currently working, to at least fulfil the saying that to whom much is given much is equally expected. ” she said.
“Kaduna State government for instance gave us a platform to showcase our prowess in environmental waste management which has opened up for us several other doors, hence contributing back to the state in any form is imperative” Dr Bashorun emphasized.
