Beggars give El-rufai 7 days to reverse anti-begging law

12 May 2016, 15:02

Kaduna - Beggars in Kaduna State have given Governor Nasir El-Rufai seven days ultimatum to withdraw the anti-begging law, Vanguard reports.

The beggars on Wednesday stormed the Kaduna state council of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), asserting that they did not mind sacrificing their lives in the fight against the law.

Governor El-Rufai had last week assented to the bill to ban street begging and hawking, which the beggars described as contrary to the promises made to them during campaign.

The Chairman of Concerned Citizens with Disabilities, Julius Shemang, said that the passage of the law contradicted the agreed process reached between them and the government that adequate provision and solutions would be proffered before the law would come into effect.
