Those that have any problems or challenges will be handled here,” the Governor said.

He further noted that they are working on ensuring all the street families have a better place they can call home.

This, the Governor said, will help address the issue of a section of criminals who masquerade as street families to engage in unlawful activities within the town.

We are all a family and we will do our best to ensure you have a place you can call home. With this centre, nobody will be able to use street families as an excuse to engage in criminal activities,” the Governor said.
