Kano Govt To Arrest And Hand Over Street Beggars To Wealthy Individuals

The Kano state government has placed a ban on street begging while threatening to arrest beggars and hand them over to wealthy individuals in their local councils.

This warning came from the Commissioner for Women Affairs and Social Development, Zahra’u Muhammad-Umar, during an empowerment package’s presentation to the beneficiaries, in Kano, on Thursday.

The government said it empowered no fewer than 60 women and youths with different entrepreneurial skills, following the ban on street begging in the state.

“The government cannot do it alone. Anyone found will be taken to his or her local government for the wealthy individuals there to empower them,” Mrs. Muhammad-Umar warned.

On February 5, the government arrested 500 beggars and repatriated them to their various communities, following the ban on street begging in the state.

She said there was a need for women to be financially stable and help their families, adding that “some of the beneficiaries were picked from the street and under bridges.”

Mrs. Muhammad-Umar explained that this necessitated the decision to empower the women and other vulnerable people in the state living with a disability for them to fend for themselves and quit street begging.

The beneficiaries were given N10,000 each, in addition to sewing machines, soya beans, beans, millet, rice, freezers, small generating sets, groundnut oil, pestle and mortar, frying pan, flour, grinding machines, and second-hand clothes.
