Federal Fire Service Inspects Fire Station Constructed By Otukpo SOLAD

Men of the Federal Fire Service were in Otukpo yesterday to inspect the Fire Station constructed by the George Alli led Administration of Otukpo Local Government.

The fire station is expected to serve the 9 Local Government areas in the Benue South Senatorial District otherwise known as Zone C.

The SOLAD said was motivated to construct the fire station because the nearest to Otukpo is 1 hour 51 minutes away in Markudi which has led on more than more one occasion to the destruction of goods in Otukpo Market. The latest being the one of April 2015, when over 120 shops were destroyed before the fire service arrived resulting in damages worth over 400 Million Naira and in a town where the majority of the people live from hand to mouth.

The SOLAD was thankful to Governor Samuel Ortom and Engr Benson Abounu for granting Otukpo Local Government the use of the stretch of land between the Benue State Library Board and the Works Department of the Otukpo Local Government Council in the Otukpo township for this purpose. The land was the subject of a dispute between the Library Board and Otukpo Local Government for years.
