A Green Man Seen on the Streets of Uyo

“I am an air traffic controller in Uyo Airport. When I am not directing planes in the sky, I run SOFER Initiative. It is an organization that creates environmental awareness and aims to bring about change in people’s attitude towards it.”

What is the most important thing people need to know about the environment? “The environment is who you are. It is where you live and everything around you. People need to take responsibility and change bad habits that affect not just the environment, but our health and quality of life.”

How are you creating awareness? “I have a group of volunteers. We organize events teaching people simple ways to preserve their environment. We also go to public places like the market and motor parks distributing waste baskets to commercial drivers.”

What is your mantra? “The virtue of a generation lies in the bridge of selfless service, we may pass but a strong bridge would carry generations after.”
