Oyo State Beggars Flout Government's Order, Return To Street Begging by TruthHurts1(m): 2:09pm On Jun 24
Beggars in Ibadan have reportedly returned to Mokola roundabout and other places where they initially occupied in the city before they were relocated by the Oyo State Government.

Many of the beggars were seen sitting down while some of their children were playing at Mokola roundabout a few days after the state government moved them to a special facility.

The beggars' spokesperson, Sagire Yusuf told Vanguard News that his people did not reject the state government's offer to take them off the streets to a special facility.

He, however, lamented that it restricted their freedom.

“My people are complaining that their freedom is restricted. Why some people have not gone is because they are blind and they need assistance before they can go there. But, they promised to go there tomorrow.

“As for those people you saw at Mokola, that’s where they live. People know them there. That’s where they get money. That doesn’t mean they don’t want to go. The state government has done well for us by providing necessary facilities,” he said.

It was learnt that the beggars are worried that they may starve when the state government stops providing food for them.

But at major streets and junctions where they had stayed for years, some churches often go there with food for beggars.

And that is beside the alms they get from passersby.

SaharaReporters earlier reported that Oyo State Government had commenced the evacuation of beggars from some parts of Ibadan, the state capital, to a resettlement facility.

According to the government, the evacuation of the beggars from the Jemibewon area to a resettlement facility in Akinyele started on Tuesday, June 15, 2021.

Beggars, over the years, had been living around shanties on Jemibewon Road in the Sabo area of Ibadan, which is a Hausa/Fulani settlement in the city.

The government, however, recently said it had commenced evacuation of the beggars to the newly built Akinyele Resettlement Centre.

I respect Nigerian Christians for their generosity in spite of all the evil they have to put up with.

Lol.

The governor even cared enough to build resettlement centers for these guys but yet they are not contented.

Makinde should have done a Fashola on them by transporting them back to the North where they belong.

The government should try to put them into something productive; education for the children, paid Labour for the adults.

and not just pack them somewhere and be giving them food.

Local man is just speechless on top dx matter

But if some of them can be enrolled into various vocational sphere where they can acquire skills...it will be better for both them and the government

But the problem here is that begging have eaten deep into most of them that they cannot even keep up with the skill acquisition idea cos begging looks easy for some of them

They should come and remove the ones at Badore/Ado road, Ajah. I still wonder who gives these women belle.

I pity those innocent kids. You are already handicapped and begging for survival and yet, you went ahead to get pregnant, compounding your problems even more. They should all be charged for child abuse. I have no sympathy to give.

sad. It's simple, build them a shelter

Provide them food even if it's not 3 sqaure

Create a skill Acquisition Programme for them to learn.


Then if they decide to neglect all this and return to street?

Arrest them and deport them

Even indigines of the state aren't given such preferences....... it's either they are arrested and deported or they are arrested and put on a farm to work for a decent wage.

Moving the beggars alone isn't enough. Move all the Northerners there away from Mokola. Mokola deserves better jare. Let the BDCs move to Ogunpa and other market.
