The Lagos State Government wants to make the Guinness Book of Records by engaging 300,000 students in a tooth-brushing challenge. This is part of the plans to mark the 2012 World Oral Heath Day.
It is going to be a minute of tooth-brushing that starts at noon on December 5, 2012. About 300,000 students to participate in the exercise, would be drawn from about 300 schools in the state.
Special Adviser to the Governor on Health, Dr. Yewande Adeshina said the challenge was aimed at improving the attitude of Nigerians to oral health.
“This project does not just aim at breaking the world record but to provide vital health information to adolescents while providing a research line for future oral health planning.”
This is a great initiative and i hope it yields a positive result, more so, amidst the various social issues in the country, this is a good diversion that can lift up our souls as Nigerians.
