FIRE-1In the wake of recent fire outbreaks especially in major markets across the country, the federal government has made known its intention to collaborate with state governments to prevent future occurrences.
Recall that fire outbreaks had destroyed property and goods worth billions of naira in markets in Lagos, Kebbi, Kano, Cross River and Gombe States in recent weeks.
Reacting to the fire disaster in a fruits market in Gombe State on Wednesday, the Minister of Interior, Abdulrahman Dambazzau, on Saturday said the federal government would deepen collaboration with states.
He also condoled the victims of the fire incident.
In a statement signed by his press secretary, Osaigbovo Ehisienmen, the minister said this synergy will also involve industrialists and representatives of traders in the country.
The aim will be to build a platform for safety procedures and to also retool the nation’s fire service response mechanism at various levels, Mr. Dambazzau said.
The minister, who had earlier visited the scenes of fire incidents in Kano and Kebbi markets during the Easter holidays, stressed the need to embrace safety measures, and adhere strictly to international fire codes.
He assured that the government was determined to find lasting solution to this menace.
