Ogun State Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun has disclosed that his administration would by the middle of May 2021, commission four brand new Fire and Emergency Stations in Ifo, Ado-Odo-Ota, and Isheri parts of the state.

Prince Dapo Abiodun made this known while on an inspection tour of the Isheri Fire and Emergency Station.

The governor said that the fire station which is almost 95 to 96 percent completed is in fufilment of his promise during the electioneering campaign to ensure that the state does not have to rely on Lagos State to fight fire outbreak on the Ogun part of the Lagos-Ibadan expressway.

Governor Abiodun who also added that the fire stations when commissioned would be equipped with new fire trucks and water trucks, said part of his administration's  Emergency Response System is the combination of Fire Trucks and Ambulances on the same spot.

While recalling that his administration upon assumption of office took stock of fire stations in the state, he revealed that that they
were not habitable and not fit for any human use, as a result of years of neglect. 
He however assured that his administration would continue to put the people first.

" When we resumed office, we decided to take stock of our fire stations, but, what we saw was embarrassing, I am not sure that the fire stations have been attended to, probably in the past 12 to 14 years. They were not habitable, they were not fit for any human use, they were not premises that would even motivate anyone to attend to any fire, so, we have embarked on the massive rehabilitation of existing ones.   We have rehabilitated the stations, we have acquired new fire trucks. 

"All these we will be unveiling, they are part of our emergency response system in Ogun State which is the combination of fire trucks and ambulances," he said.
