Its a pretty rewarding experience to see a conceived idea come into fruition when on a totally different journey. This was the case for Emmanuel Sofa (Coordinator - SOFER Initiative) who in a pursuit of his career as an Air Traffic Controller decided to indulge in a recycle project during his Area Control License course at the Nigerian College of Aviation Technology (NCAT), Zaria. He subjected himself to collecting bottle caps from his course mates, the school cafeteria and sometimes out of trash bins to carry out the task. Through a span of 3 months during his course, he gathered enough used plastic bottle caps to execute project KEEP NCAT CLEAN, GREEN & SERENE. Hammering tiny nails into every bottle cap used to form these words, Emmanuel alongside a fellow course mate (Kalu Ogbonna), a serving corp member at the college (Amina Fagbayi) and a local staff (Ibrahim Garba) put together this project in 2 days. The recycle slogan was presented to the Deputy Rector of NCAT (Capt. O. J. Achimugu) in company of the Head Of Air Traffic Services and Communication School, NCAT (Mr Wayas Imaligue). They were cheered to finish by the very outstanding course members of Area Control Course (ACC34) and appreciated by the staff members of the great college.
