According to Egwim, the state has been experiencing dry weather, occasioning incessant fire disasters, thus affecting buildings, agricultural lands and establishments, including forest reserves.
The lawmaker said that if not addressed, the situation could spell disaster for the individual and corporate existence of the state.
He also said it was worrisome that some people maliciously set bushes on fire, culminating in the destruction of private buildings, farmlands and plantations.
The lawmaker expressed the regret that many of the culprits had gone scot free, even though there were established MDAs charged with controlling such disasters.
He, therefore, called for the prosecution of offenders, in accordance with the provisions of extant laws, to serve as deterrent to others.
The legislator also called for the invitation of the chief fire commandant and the commissioners for agriculture and environment before the house executive session to explain their inability to control fire outbreaks in the state.
