Recall that the Oyo State government had in June this year moved beggars who usually litter major streets in Ibadan to a rehabilitation centre in Moniya

Our correspondent who went around Mokola, Gate, Dugbe, Eleyele, Sango, Bodija, Ojoo, Sabo and Iwo Road in Ibadan between Monday and Friday observed that the beggars were gradually littering the streets.

The beggars have also continued with their begging business without hindrances,

Chief Press Secretary to the state governor, Mr. Taiwo Adisa, when contacted said that “only the ministry of women affairs had the authority to speak on the matter”.

Adisa said, “Pls call the Min of Women Affairs.

The Ministry was put in charge of the programme. PS is better positioned”.

But, all efforts made by Journalists to get a reaction from the ministry proved abortive as at the time of filing this report on Friday.
