Lagos State University | Lagos, Nigeria | Advancing SDG 3 & UNAI 9
" George Eliot once said; Our deeds determine us, as much as we determine our deeds. Over the years, millions of deaths have been recorded due to the presence of unsafe and unhygienic environments. The efficacy of SDG 6 cannot be over emphasized because it is capable of determining the health status and life span of individuals. As a Millennium Fellow, I strongly believe that this is an unfeigned platform to instigate positive changes on campus as well as in the world at large. "
