Must read

The Delta State government has sent a 32-year-old woman back to her native Anambra for constituting a nuisance as a street beggar.

Ogochukwu Nwabud, who begged for alms in Asaba, was, thereafter, empowered by the Commissioner for Women and Social Welfare in her state, Ify Obinabo, and cautioned to desist from alms begging.

A press release on Friday, April 7, 2023, by the media aide to the Commissioner, Chidinma Ikeanyionwu said the repatriated woman was empowered and handed over to the women’s leader in her community in Nnewi.

“Ogochukwu Nwabude, a 32-year-old mother of one, was sent back to Anambra by the Delta State government for constituting nuisance by begging in the said state.

“Obinabo who did not spare the repatriated beggar frowned at the act but encouraged her to be an agent of change by engaging in a trade to fend for herself and her child.

“She (Obinabo) empowered her with a little token to help her start up a business of her choice but warned that if caught again, she will be taken to court and face the law.”

Ikeanyionwu quoted the woman as saying, ”She only engaged in the act for two weeks before she was captured by the Delta state government and repatriated to the Anambra.

”She promised not to engage in alms begging and pledged to make good use of the empowerment.

”She was later handed over to the Uruagu Woman leader in Nnewi who will be monitoring her progress and report to the ministry”, Ikeanyionwu said.
