The National Orientation Agency (NOA) has called on corporate bodies and well-meaning Nigerians to move against terminally-ill persons parading Nigerian roads, claiming to be care-givers seeking money from people.
The Rivers State Director of the Agency, Mr. Oliver Wolugbom, who handed down the call in Port Harcourt during a one day seminar organised by the agency, in collaboration with the daughters of Charity of Saint Vincent De Paul and the catholic Diocese of Port Harcourt, said that the position was necessary since the practice further exposes the ill persons to more health hazards, exploitations by their so called care giver and dehumanization.
Commending the Daughters of Charity of the Catholic Church, who from the burden of their heart over the years have initiated the partnership process with the National Orientation Agency, as well as the relevant stakeholders, Wolugbom expressed the believe that if a formidable and desirable public and private partnership is built, our roads and streets will be free of the menace.
While promising the agency’s unreserved for implementing the partnership programme with the Daughters of Charity since they have the pedigree of caring for the less privilege in the society, Wolugbom admitted that parts of the mandate as an agency of government is to mobilise Nigeria into cultivating and imbibe right attitudes that elicit core national values that are globally acceptable as best practice for peace, justice, healthy living and development.
