“The environmental song used in the MVP will be their own composition; hence, the message will come from their mind, heart and soul. Consequently, they will practice what is in their own output. It is easy to contaminate the greater majority of the people as the initiative will come from the most influential segment of the population,” the EMB-CAR stated in a social media post.
