The Governor of Sokoto State, Aminu Tambuwal, on Tuesday, instructed the state Ministry of Lands and Housing, to allot land to the Federal Fire Service for the completion of its Zonal Office in the state.
He gave this directive during an inspection of the two firefighting vehicles allocated to the zonal office by the Federal Government in Sokoto.
The Governor thanked the Federal government and Ministry of Interior for establishing the zonal office in the state.
“The Federal Government’s intervention in that regard would no doubt complement the state government’s efforts in that direction.
“As a government, we are fully committed to safeguarding the entire people of Sokoto State and their properties as well as ensure an enabling environment of their businesses to thrive.
“So, I want to assure you that all the courtesies being enjoyed by other Federal Government’s establishments in the state will be extended here for the overall development of the people,” he said.
The Zonal Commander of the Federal Fire Service in Sokoto, Alhaji Bello Zagga, while seeking the collaboration of the state government, applauded the Federal Government for allocating four firefighting vehicles to the zone.
He said two of the trucks were issued to Sokoto, while Kebbi and Zamfara states got one apiece.
