This study focuses on the street begging which has been an age-long problem in Sokoto North local government areas and the efforts made by the government in several instances involved giving beggars monthly survival allowance and enlightenment campaign to combat this ugly situation. But this has often proved to be a short term solution. The study is fully convinced that if the government and other relevant authorities should apply different strategies in order to tackle the menace of street begging in the local government area, street begging will be a thing of the past.
