Sanitation Day

by

Yesterday was a “sanitation day” in Benin City, Nigeria.  Everyone but medical doctors must stay home between 7-10am or risk major fines.  The “holiday” is statewide and observed on different days in other states.  People are supposed to clean up their homes and compounds, though many choose to simply sleep in.

    What an interesting event. I’ve never heard of this, but it does make sense in ways. Looking forward to reading more about this.
