oshiomoleEdo State health officials have decried what they described as the explosion in the population of beggars in the state capital, Benin.

According to the Director of Primary Health Care, Edo State Ministry of Health, Dr. Casmir Amebenomo, during a one-day workshop on “Contraceptive Technology Update for Technocrats, Managers, Service Providers and Policy Makers,” organised by Nigerian Urban Health Reproductive Initiative (NURHI), the development is worrisome and a source for concern.

Amebenomo expressed fear that “unless some drastic measures are taken to control the high rate of population increase in the state, especially among the physically challenged beggars along Mission Road in Benin, the effect might become uncomplimentary to government efforts at improving the standard of living of the people in Edo State.”
Commending officials of NURHI for involving public healthcare facilities in their family activities, he urged them to extend their services to the community of physically challenged persons in the state in order for them to benefit from proper family planning.
