The Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Mr. Muhammad Bello, who made this known while speaking to newsmen at a media parley, said that “789 beggars, mentally ill and other social miscreants have so far been evacuated from the streets of the FCT.”
He stated that government was determined to ensure that “women, youths, children and the vulnerable in FCT are adequately catered for.”
Daily Sun quoted the Acting secretary of the Social Development Secretariat (SDS), Mrs. Irene Adebola Elegbede, who spoke on behalf of the minister, as saying that it “is almost impossible to eradicate the world’s oldest profession from the FCT.”
Mrs. Elegbede further used the medium to urge members of the National Assembly to expedite action on a stiffer legal framework that would help in addressing the daunting challenge of beggars, miscreants and commercial sex workers.
