Don’t expect Nigerian President doing this anytime some, we know Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti state interacts a lot with his people. We hope some of our leaders can emulate John Magufuli instead of sitting in their comfy offices and homes. Read the report below..
Tanzanian President John Pombe Magufuli surprised onlookers Wednesday when he walked out of State House to collect rubbish off the streets, after cancelling Independence Day celebrations for a national clean-up.
Magufuli, who took power in November after winning the October 25 elections, has introduced a swathe of austerity cuts and crackdowns on public corruption.
Dozens of fishermen joined in the clean-up with their president, who shovelled leaves and plastic rubbish close to a fish market near the presidential palace as a crowd of hundreds looked on.
“Let us work together to keep our country, cities, homes and workplaces clean, safe and healthy,” the smiling Magufuli said, as he picked up litter with his hands.
Street cleaning took place across the economic capital Dar es Salaam, with plumes of smoke rising into the sky as residents burned piles of litter.
