Fire Service Sector, A New Face In Niger State By Abdullberqy Ebbo
Governor Abubakar Sani Bello, for those who’ve followed his government with unsentimental interests, has done quite a lot and much more than his colleagues in other States. The truth is, even though the government hasn’t made noise about its activities, the administration hit the ground running. And if a proper channel of authenticating achievements in different sectors is in place, it’s easy for Governor Abubakar Sani Bello to be placed above other governors in his quick responses to social, economic and administrative challenges.
Out of the matrix of abandoned projects inherited by Governor Sani bello is the fire service sector which has claimed hundreds of lives and destroyed properties worth millions.
This dehuamnising state of our firefighting system is a consequence of the past 16 years of absolute insensitivity to the basic needs of the people by a government that didn’t bother to recognize the sacrifice fire fighters make every day to safe guard lives and properties of the people, registering injustice against humanity. Perhaps the key players in the past governments did not bother to ponder the statistical growth of how their obsessions with misappropriating funds allocated to critical sectors such as fire service have ruined lives and claimed properties of the common people.
Governor Sani Bello deviated from the normal tradition of neglecting developmental issues and took the courage to do that which is right and good. Today our Fire Service sector is witnessing a profound change in the positive direction.
The pictures below is the ongoing total renovation of Fire Service Station along Bosso road with procured Fire Fighting Vehicles, this project is targeting the entire 25 Local Government Areas of the State
May God Guide Our Leaders To Do That Which Is Right And Good.
