Today, an awesome project is taking place. this first-of-its-kind unprecedented nation building project that will draw over 5,000 volunteers to paint houses on seven MUSHIN streets on Saturday, December 12, 2009.
The Project has continued to enjoy the support of individuals and corporate organizations across Nigeria, as one of the finest paint producers in Nigeria, BERGER PAINTS, are also partnering to train about 100 unemployed Mushin youths on the art of painting preparatory to the exercise.

The First Lady of the State, Mrs. Abimbola Fashola will also be flagging off the event on Saturday, as she puts brush on the first building to be painted.
