Enugu – The Enugu State Fire Service, on Monday, celebrated restoration of water supply after four years of operating without water supply in its main office in Enugu.
The Director, Enugu State Fire Service, Mr Okwudiri Ohaa, who led the celebration in a viral video, told newsmen in Enugu that Gov. Peter Mbah had made the job of fire-fighting simpler in the state.
Ohaa explained that water and its availability remained the most important commodity in the business of fire-fighting.
He said that water running profusely in our headquarters today is “a bold statement that Gov. Mbah is a promise keeper”.
He said that soon the service would also revive its various water hydrates located in strategic locations within Enugu metropolis and its outskirts; where its fire-fighting trucks and tanks can get water easily and quick.
According to him, earlier today, we at the Enugu State Fire Service experienced an astonishing development – our taps are finally flowing with forceful water.
He said: “This incredible news fills us with immense gratitude towards His Excellency, the Executive Governor of Enugu State, Dr Peter Mbah, for delivering on his promise.
“In just 110 days in office, Gov. Mbah has already brought about significant changes.
“The presence of water in our office is a game-changer, sparing us the hassle of constantly visiting the state’s work office to fetch water.
“As you can imagine, water is essential to the Fire Service, and we cannot express enough how truly grateful we are to the governor for turning our dreams into reality.”
Ohaa, who is also the Chief Safety and Rescue Officer of the state, said this remarkable milestone was a reminder that “our tomorrow is here”.
“We salute Gov. Mbah and his team for their unwavering dedication to improving the lives of Enugu State residents even as we continue to witness the positive transformations happening in our beloved state,” he said.
