Begging remains serious offence in FCT
Federal Capital Territory Administration, FCTA, has outlawed begging in the territory and warned beggars to stay clear of the streets to avoid arrest and prosecution.
The FCTA, in a statement signed by Special Assistant, Media, to FCT Minister, Mr. Nosike Ogbuenyi, weekend, said: “The FCT Administration wishes to inform the general public that all forms of begging are still outlawed in the entire FCT.
“Begging by any person or group of people, be they young, old, sick or healthy are forbidden on the streets, roads, neighbourhoods, motor-parks, junctions and other places in the FCT.
“We are calling on all residents not to do anything whatsoever to support or promote these unlawful acts.
“The FCT Administration through its Social Development Secretariat and other related organs has intensified its activities towards apprehending all those who are engaging in such illegal acts.(We Nigerian have no problem with the government outlawing begging in the FCT, but its only wish for the government to provide shelter for the homeless, and a reinstatement plan for theses baggers just like its done in other countries).
