BOULOS Enterprises, foremost Suzuki dealer in Nigeria has joined the Suzuki family around theglobe in the annual beachcleanup, which is a world event undertaken in every country where Suzuki has a manufacturing factory and distributor. The Beach cleanup which held at Epe Waterways recently attracted market women, fishermen and natives who joined the Boulos management team and staff in cleaning up the Beach shore, in Lagos.
Speaking at the event, General Sales and Marketing Manger, Mr. Stanley Evans, who led the team explained that it was their company’s turn to roll up their sleeves and clean a Beach again this year, explaining that the original concept in cleaning up the Beach is to create an awareness and sensitise people on the need to keep the environment clean.
He pointed out that a clean environment is vital to healthy living, especially for the natives who are fishermen and traders. Noting that the fish needs a healthy water to grow healthy, he added that this will make business thrive and the community will not only be healthy but will be economically buoyant.
During the exercise, staff of Boulos Enterprises and the natives, fishermen and traders collected discarded bottles, waste papers and other refuse and items which will be recycled. Also present were representatives from Lagos State Ministry of Agriculture, Mrs. Emokpae, the Director of Fisheries; Mr. Ojuru Olatoyinbo (AGM Market Research and development), Lagos State Agric Input Supply Authority (LAISA), Epe Local Government officials, farmers and several others.
In her remark, the Marketing Specialist Boulos Enterprises, Bola Adekaiyero said “This was a special occasion as at the same time of day Brazil, Scotland and Vietnam Suzuki staff were cleaning a beach in their country. It demonstrated the commitment that Boulos and Suzuki have as a company to a cleaner greener Lagos and the environment in general, I felt proud that we could be involved in this noble cause and am grateful to the press, fishing association and farmers, who assisted us.” Boulos Suzuki will undertake the same exercise around this date next year.
