Sokoto Governor to ban street begging
The Governor said the act is degrading and it does not align with the tenets of Islam.
He said this while giving assistance to the needy under the State Zakkat and Endowment Committee.

He promised to improve the lives of Sokoto people despite the present economic situation in the country.
Also, the Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar III, also praised the Governor for funding of the Zakat committee.
Governor Aminu Tambuwal also increased the allowances of corps members in the state.
