Destitiute picked up at Marina Lagos this morning

People observed this vehicle picking up destitute at Marina Lagos around 6:30 this morning. Office of youth and social development was written on the KIA Motors truck that carried away the homeless people seen loitering and sleeping in the area. Wonder where they are taking these ones too since Gov Peter Obi of Anambra is quarreling with Gov Fashola for allegedly dumping over seventy homeless people in Onitsha last week.

Governor Fashola has since said only 14 destitute were repatriated from the state and not the 70 people widely reported. The governor said the homeless people said they were from Anambra state and needed assistance to go back home, so they took them to Onitsha.

Hahahahaha yes na they needed transport 2 go back 2 der town n d Governor assisted them by taking them down,wot s bad in that?

BEN said...

LOL! Keep on dumping them to their home town... How bout those foreign beggers on our road?? Kindly port them to their various countries too.

BLOGLORD said...

....but don't these people have villages? Its not ride or die! If its not working out with the hustling in Lagos, go back to the village and do some farm work, at least you will sleep on your beds or mats and have fresh cultivated food to eat.

Fashola should focus on delivering good governance to the people.he did not campaign for this,if he did he would not be voted for.it is govt fault that is why nigerians resort to begging.there is no better job.how can one pay house rent with 15k salary?there are vacant estate build by politicians because the rent is outrageous.

Fashola is a known tribalist. One wonders why pple are even clamouring to hv ACN or CPC in power. They will abuse power more than d PDP. PDP is evil but they r lesser evil. D other he went to LADIPO to close IGBO pple's shop and taxing them unnecessarily. He also wanted to try same at trade fair but was told it belong to d federal govt. I wonder why nigerians are now being deported in their own country,yet 2moro u will all say we r one nigeria. What then is one about us??? Nonesense pple.

I agree plz... Fashola is doing what he thinks is best for the state he's governing. These people are becoming a nuisance, they should go to their villages and become useful if they have nothing doing in Lagos, rather than living under bridges and ghettos, breed 10 kids etc, hence over populating the place. I'm not a Lagosian, I go for business and leave, so not being bias in anyway. I hail from Akwa Ibom and if I see immigrants doing nothing but come to over populate the State and my governor does same, i'ii totally support him. Let's be realistic and not attach sentiments. Ride on Fashola, even if they're Akwa Ibomites, deport them. Barrister says so...

Like seriously, arw they meant to be conveyed in an ac bus or a limo they havnt paid for? My bro true talk jare..toiling the soil will be a better option sincerely speaking..no more counting bridges in lagos* hass says so!

Exactly well said. My thoughts too.

Anonymous said...

The Lagos govt should be commended for ridding Lagos of nuisance and crime. Besides, we have been told that Peter Obi was properly briefed before the destitutes were returned on choice. If Lagosians are picked up as nuisance or criminals in other States, they should be purnished or returned to the govt of Lagos State. Other states should keep their environment clean and free of nuisance in the example of Lagos.

Same thing is done here in abuja. Distitute and beggars are repatriate to their various but their state social devt/laision are not willing to accept them hence the social workers just dump them. However, some still find their way back to the city. Rehabilitation? It's voluntary... You can't force them esp. Chronic beggar to so... *Floetry In Motion*

Anonymous said...

Do you expect the governor to leave these people on the streets? He rehabilitated the 'deportees' and asked them what next? Many of them were headed back to the streets!!! Isn't it better to transport such people back to their hometowns? They are 'high-risks' to us all. Do u know how often people get robbed/kidnapped/'obtained' in Marina while walking from their office to the car park??? I've been attacked once and nobody dared look in my direction during the assault.

Some of these people travel to Lagos on borrowed funds with no plan whatsoever, no relation, nothing and of course they end up being daytime beggars and nighttime robbers. And of course, they buy their weapons with the money we 'pitifully' gave them when they begged us!!!

I support Fashola. He needs to keep our streets clean.

Fashola will be worse than obj if he finds himself at the centre, why on earth will you subject a fellow citizen to such inhuman condition as if you're carrying chickens ,are they not Nigerians. There are destitute all over the world, there is one by the fence of the white house. Progressive my foot, if the British or Us government did something close Nigerians will be shouting ,yet we treat our own people worse than animals. The entire media is silent because of what they are getting from Fashola including thealmighty Sahara reporters and even Punch ,i have said it ,there are three evils in Nigeria ,the judiciary ,politicians and the media . Where are the Falanas, Soyinka ,Agbakoba and the rest of the human right community in Nigeria ,iis it because of the occasional change Fashola sends your way and the appointment to head one event or the other in Lagos that you're seeing no evil. Shame on all of you

Nigerians are very funny people,rather than condem what Fashola did people are wiping up ethnic sentiments ,yet we are supposed to be one Nigerians ,Fasola should tread with caution and stop this arrogance . Ben Akabueze is tier not because of Fashola ,but his mentor Bola Tinubu,he would fired him if he had his way. Fashola is a dictator to the core ,the media hype has gotten into his skull. I wonder watt kind of fasting that will allow you to subject a fellow human to such barbaric treatment. The back page celebrity writers should speak up or shut up ,everyone is quite because it is Fashola

Ny brother ,forget Nigerian journalist ,they are a bunch of hungry people looking for brown fat envelopes ,the back page writers are glorified praise singers ,Fashola has murdered sleep ,he's too elitist and tribalistic ,why subject your fellow countrymen to such treatment in the name of beautifying Lagos , Can he account for the cost of all the flowers ? He's behaving as if he will die in office ,why build a park and fence it ,thank God the national assembly rejected the clamor for state police

Fashola is doing a great job in lagos state and am in support of what his doing. This is not a tribalism issue I was at oshodi few weeks ago when mopols raided the oshodi nausaince,destitiutes,jobless boys and we all know that 60% of the taunt re yorubas so pls stop saying fashola is being unfair to the ibos . Fashola is only doing this for our own good. Can u compare the lagos of 10yrs ago to the lagos of today. We should all be grateful to him instead of critizing him. To stay in Lagos na by force instead suffering themself let them go back home, abi when fashola was offering to help with their transport fare why didn't they go, abeg I want a situation whereby I will able to leave home 5.am to work without any fear of my bag being snatched or robbed.those of u blamimg fashola thinks twice before posting.am not a lagosian

Fashola"s action is so wrong ,he should stop this lame defense and learn to keep quite ,Nigeria is home to all ,that you have Ben Akabueze in your cabinet is for the igbo votes ,besides ,you have no input in that ,including all the people around you

Not everyone can avoid to leave in lagos,it's just like NY or paris it's not all there citizens that can avoid the big city..lagos is much congested so if they cant add to the improvement in lag let send 'em parking..

what is sad about what Fashola did afterall some Lagosians were departed back to Lagos from the east too, you dnt have to live in Lagos to survive, its hard enough, coming without any back up makes it worse.
how can a sane man jump on d wagon and bid his village farewell that he's coming to lagos to make it; who does that? are they picking money on the streets of lagos?
like one sensible Ibo woman spoke on facebook 'ur governor and leaders shd fix your state and stop running to other people's state' Lagosians living in Lagos are about 10M or less where are the remaining 15M from? u guys wanna pollute the state?

gush - am outta here

The day Fashola starts to pick up area boys that are more of a threat to the society, is the day I will start believing in the program. Many of these people that are being picked from the streets are more productive members of the society than the area boys that are stealing and maiming, yet remain untouchables.

And for those that are talking about the picked-ups constituting a nuisance to the society, it may interest you to know that many of them have hand-works and were either going to or returning from their places of work before they were picked up commando style and no question asked. Meanwhile, area boys are having a field day.

Fashola, has shown himself to be evil. I could never have imagined that a so called senior advocate of Nigeria that supposed to know the law would be infringing on people's rights with impunity.
