The Kogi State governor said his administration had concluded plans to procure additional two fire engines for the effective operations of the Fire Service in the state.
Governor Yahaya Bello stated this, on Thursday, in Lokoja, the state capital when the Comptroller General of the Federal Fire Service, Mr Joseph Aniebe, paid him a courtesy call.
The governor said that the service had suffered neglect in the state over the years in terms of equipment procurement, but his administration took the bull by the horn to make sure fire engines are procured.
“When I assumed office as governor, the state had no working firefighting truck, but the state executive council under my leadership has approved procurement of two fire fighting trucks,” he added.
The governor further made a commitment to ensure Kogi State has the best firefighting service in the federation.
