Posted on Updated on

The Lagos State Government of Babatunde Fashola
continued it’s “send-destitutes-home
programme”, deporting another 46 people to
Osun state.
Receiving the destitute at the National Youth
Development Centre, Ode-Omu, the
Special Adviser to Governor Rauf Aregbesola
on Youths, Sports and Special Needs, Hon. Biyi
Odunlade said that the state government has
no option than to take care of its citizens in
any part of the country.
According to him out of the 46 destitute
evacuated from Lagos, only 26 were genuine
indigenes of the state after their screening.
Odunlade disclosed that about 150 destitute
have been repatraited to the state from Lagos,
Oyo and other places since the current
administration came on board.
His words; “We were invited by Lagos State to
pick our brothers and sisters who were
destitute and 46 persons were brought, out of
which we discovered that just 26 of them are
actually indigenes of the state, comprising of
19 males and five females with two children
who are from different local governments in
the state. It is our responsibility to take the matter up
because Governor Aregbesola believes in
quick and responsible action which is why
the state government insisted that any time we are invited by Lagos to evacuate our citizens, we
respond in good time.”
