Beggars in Kaduna accuse Governor of betrayal

The beggars alleged that El-Rufai promised to put structures in place to cater for their needs before the anti-begging law is passed.

 

They also accused the Governor of not keeping the  campaign promise he made before he was elected.

The spokesman of the group, Muntari Sale, also said the state government has not shown any concern for those living with disability.

He said “We demand that the governor of the state, Malam Nasir El-Rufai and members of the State House of Assembly to fulfil the promises they made to us during their campaign while seeking for votes from us,” he said.

“The Governor promised us that he will not ban street begging until he makes adequate arrangement for our upkeep and welfare.

“He promised that 30 per cent of our members would be giving ‎employment anytime the state government has a programme running which has not been met, he also promised to provide for the sick, educate our children and employ those in different skills with a view to easing the suffering of the people living with disability.”

A joint team of security men reportedly cordoned off the Government House to make sure there was no breakdown of law and order.
