The Director of Kano State Fire Service, Alhaji Sagir Madaki has appreciated the state government over the reopening of nine fire fighting schools closed down by the administration of the former governor of the state, Engr. Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso.
Alhaji Madaki, who spoke to The Triumph in an exclusive interview in Kano, said the action would go a long way in securing the lives of the people in the state and even beyond.
The fire officer explained that structures such as schools for firefighting help a lot in securing the lives of the people as well as their property.
He added that the state government under the able leadership of Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje also helped them in reconstructing their headquarters in the state.
According to him, the governor has as well renovated the office in his first tenure, praying God to continue to give him the wisdom to continue to discharge his duties diligently.
Meanwhile, the director has also commended Governor Ganduje for doing what others did not do to them previously.
He said the governor consistently pays their allowances and salaries in addition to other goodies.
Alhaji Mdaki explained that the governor has set up a fire station at Danladi Nasidi Housing Estate in the state, gives them supply of 60 drums of chemical foams and other working equipment, purchased two Toyota Hillux vehicles and reconstructed Muhammadu Abubakar Rimi Market fire station.
He added that the governor also refurbished 25 fire fighting trucks at the department of Fire Fighting, saying that constant supply of fuel (DPK) to the Emergency Unit was another gesture from the governor.
