Reacting, Nollywood actor, BIgvai Oreoluwa Jokotoye who now leaves in the United States of America drops a contrary opinion as he disclosed that there are shelters for homeless people in almost every city in America.

He wrote; “There are shelters for homeless people in almost every city if not every city in America. But, most of them are addicted to drugs, they rather remain homeless than going to shelters where drugs are not allowed. I know Nigerians who have been to shelters when they had no where to live. No matter how you paint America, Nigeria is 1 million miles behind.”
