Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo has evacuated beggars from the streets to Akinyele Resettlement Centre in the state.
The disclosure was made by @oyoaffairs on Instagram, which shared photos of the moment on the social media platform.
In the photos, the beggars could be seen packing their belongings and getting set to have a new lease of life.
Many buses and security vehicles that would convey the beggars to their new site were also on the ground.
It should be noted that in recent times, Governor Makinde has been the darling of many Nigerians who commend the governor for exemplary leadership.
Social media users share their thoughts
“They should be relocated to the North. Elrufai and Ganduje relocated almajiris to their state of origin. Why are we pampering these people who could be a threat to us tomorrow? Send them back to the north. @seyi_amakinde.”
