  1. This is wickedness! Can El Rufai put such law without considering the beggars and less privilege? Hawkers can’t even do their business. He wicked for this

  2. Yeye dy smell. If they like make dem occupy the Governor’s bedroom, how has that affected my current status. Mchew.

  3. El Rufaa is do nonsens since they are vote am enter a govment house. And the beggars are even follows to vote am. So why he dey do them shege like this? It be me like say is only law wey that man is sabi do. He go just de put law everywhere wey he see. He see small pikin weyris go church na him he come put law of church. He see womens wey are go market na him he come put law of going to market. When the womens are come back he is put law of coming back from market. Law de sweet that man up and down.

  4. Governor’s initiative is correct and good development PROVIDED, he provides alternative. These people are less privileged and handicapped. Obviously, they are deprived of work by their physical challenges.

    What needs to be done in my opinion, is TWO-WAYS.

    1. Summon ALL handicapped in the state to register at their local govt for weekly allowance and to ensure it enough for them for the week. And also ensure these people have residence to live.

    2. Create a workforce that is handicapped friendly where they earn salary or income. Yes, handicapped can work too depending on individual condition(s).

    But if Mr. Gov. only wants to get rid of them from the streets without providing means of livelihood for them, that will be unfair and constitutes wickedness. This is my submission.

    • @ Amanda you are on point, what you stated is social justice the Governor is trying to create a conducive atmosphere where stability and economy thrives while at the same time improving the image of the state, as we all know first impression is lasting impression,social justice is what he need to put in place, but first he need to have a register of all handicap persons in the state; technology is now available to do it, its a big task considering our situation, but the there is also the issue of fraud which need to be consider how to prevent other able bodied persons (ghosts)getting the support. I hope the Governor will look into these areas to encourage the less able bodies in engaging in some beneficial activity to enhance their dignity in society.

      • I do feel concern about fraud thing that thrive in the country. Honestly, that’s govt job. When someone gets caught, make huge example out of him or her. This will serve as deterrent for others. While at the same times ensure rule of law and not just lock up innocent people or not. Their should be due process in place.

        Average Nigerians are corrupt as much as the govt.

  5. I don’t blame El Rufai in this respect. Why should they beg and constitute nuisance in the state. Some of them can work as shoe menders and other menial jobs but laziness and easy money could not allow them
    Beside if it Can work in Lagos state, it can definitely work in Kaduna state.

  6. El rufai and his hearth of stone..
    U won’t provide any learning working scheme 4 d handicap and u won’t allow dem 2 beg..
    Dis man really gat gaught
