Group scores Fire Service boss’ performance high


By Ameh Ejekwonyilo

A group, the Coalition in Defence of Emergency Management yesterday expressed confidence in the competence and performance of the Comptroller-General of the Nigerian Fire Service, Mr Anebi Garba, saying the agency has improved in the tackling of fire challenges in the country.

The group gave the commendation at the weekend during a fact-finding mission to ascertain the state of facilities at some fire stations in the country.

The head of the group, Mr John Oli said in a statement that the CG has boosted the firefighting agency with adequate man-power and equipment to adequately cope with challenges that come with management emergency and inferno prevention and control.

He noted that if adequate support is not given to the agency by the federal government, the giant strides of the CG to respond promptly to fire outbreaks would be jettisoned.

“We wish to commend the CG and state that the over N4 billion for the development of the agency and purchase of firefighting equipment to enable efficiency in fire outbreak control has been utilised.

“Also, we found that staff are promoted and our visits to fire stations across the country has shown that the federal fire service is discharging duties adequately. We are saying there is need for the CG to be encouraged,” Oli stated.
