The ‘king’ of the blind beggars in Oyo State, Alhaji Ibrahim Mohammed, who was among hundreds of beggars recently relocated from Sabo area of Ibadan to a newly built resettlement centre by the state government has demanded a better condition from the government.
He tabled his concern before the government when he had the opportunity to speak with the Nigerian Tribune.
He was quoted as saying, “We want the governor to build separate rooms for those of us with wives and children. I have three wives and plenty children.
And As a married man, it is not ideal and appropriate for me to be sleeping in a general room with my wives.
So, I am imploring the governor to help us construct rooms for married couples among us. Though the present expansive rooms here can individually accommodate more than 20 people at a time, the government should build different rooms for us that have wives.
Having a separate room accommodation is very important.”
