EDSG… Lethargic in fixing fire outbreaks.
… One fire too many! Time for government to take responsibility
Edo state government led by governor Obaseki shouldn’t bother to visit Ekiosa market or the EDPA building ravaged by fire. They have visited all 4 other fire incident sites and they are still not able to proffer, provide or even articulate a strategy to minimize loses or damages when ever these unfortunate fire incidents occur!
In its almost 12 years in the saddle, the APC led government has failed miserably to address the incessant fire outbreaks especially in markets during Yuletide periods. They have taken cluelessness and lethargy of ideas to a new level.
Edo PDP sympathies with the traders and families of those who lost valuables and were directly or indirectly affected by the inferno! This outbreak, is one too many! It is sad to know that it occurred during the day when help from a functional fire service would have minimized the damage.
Edo PDP condemns in very strong terms the lack of an efficient, well funded, equipped and trained fire brigade service. We have over the years lamented the deplorable state the APC led government has plunged the state fire service. A situation that has eroded confidence and destroyed the morale of the few brave men and woman that have remained in the service.
Instead of just setting up another committee to probe the cause of the fire as it’s the playbook of the APC Government of Obaseki, he should also apologize to the traders in Ekiosa market for his sluggish approach in revamping and reorganizing a fire service worthy in name. He should as a matter of urgency, pull up his sleeve and begin to govern and spend less time, energy and state resources in a needless battle of superiority with his Godfather.
Edo PDP will not tolerate a situation whereby governance takes a back row seat to political shenanigans. Let it be known that the behavior of the APC led government are not Politically Bailable!
PDP… Making EDO People Matter!
