    This beach is very clean na! What happened to Oniru, Eleko or Alpha beach for a start?

    I commend any environmental initiative in Nigeria. It is time we all took protecting our environment seriously as the quality of our environment has direct public health implications and ramifications. Efforts such as cleaning our beaches and waterways should be sustained and should not be another celebrity self-promoting venture. However, celebrities can help bring the desired attention to environmental issues such as poor ambient air quality, oil spills, poor water quality, wastes, e-wastes, euthrophication, etc.

    Good work,but this should have been spread to other beaches that need serious cleaning like the beaches located along Lekki Expressway. I don’t think people really go to this particular beach, which is where Barbeach used to be. Isn’t this where they are constructing Eko Atlantic City?

    There’s a reason why eko atlantic was used na! Copa Lagos takes place at eko atlantic every year. It makes no sense going to clean other beaches.
