The Kano State Government is getting set to ensure the full scale implementation of the ban on street begging.
The Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje said this when he visited some facilities which are meant for the rehabilitation of beggars in the state.
“The visit was as part of the final touch for the full scale take-off of our banning of begging in the state. Begging is banned and will remain banned. We are telling these beggars to leave begging forever. And we are committed to see to the implementation of this,” he said.
He said all arrangements are concluded for seeing that all Almajiri schools and Almajiris comply with the state policy on free and compulsory education.
“When we capture these beggars we take them to these facilities and take good care of them, we give them education, feed them and look after their living condition.”
Each of the facilities visited by the governor could accommodate thousands of Almajiris
