Kwara State Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq on Tuesday handed over a 5000-litre capacity fire fighting truck to the state fire service, a few months after the administration gave two ultra modern skytick fire service technology to the service.
AbdulRazaq praised the service for doing so much to prevent loss of lives and properties in some recent fire outbreaks in the state, saying the administration would continue to equip it and train its staff for optimal service delivery to the people.
“We will continue to invest in your training and your equipment, and this is part of the evidences that we have to invest in your human capacity and equip you to do the job,” the Governor said shortly before handing the key of the 5000-litre vehicle made by Innoson Nigeria
“I know you need more and we will continue to strive to give you more and to make sure that your activities extend to other senatorial districts in the state.”
Kwara State Fire Service Director Waheed Yakub commended the Governor for the gesture, adding that it underscored his love for the people of the state.
“Your Excellency has done so much for us to bring us to where we are today. We can only thank you for your rare commitment to secure people’s lives and properties. We thank you for this new addition to what you have done for us,” Yakub said.
In November, AbdulRazaq handed over 27 vehicles to the Kwara State civil service, including two Hillux vans with modern fire fighting technology, to enhance their movement and service delivery to the people.
