Clean Streets

Personal memory by Eboselume Ehi-Bello

2016 CEPort Harcourt, Nigeria

"I remember when I was young and used to walk around the clean streets of my beautiful city filled with so much green. Now if you stand on those streets you won't believe that trees stood there once. They have been cut down and replaced with commercial buildings, the streets filled with hawkers that you can't even walk without crashing into one of them. The inhabitants of this once great city don't care as they throw their garbage out of their cars and pockets. Later they cry and say that the government doesn't do anything. We are missing the good and clean people."
