Firefighters’ welfare my top priority, says Ag Fire Chief



The Acting Controller General (CG) of the Federal Fire Service (FFS), Mr Samson Karebo, has promised to make staff welfare number one on his agenda list.

This is contained in a statement issued by the FFS Public Relations Officer (PRO), Mrs Ugo Huan, in Abuja.

Karebo, while assuring that he would ensure every staff of the FFS gets what is due him or her, warned that he would not tolerate indiscipline from anyone.

He also encouraged firefighters to exhibit love amongst themselves, while making effort to develop themselves and prepare for challenges ahead.

The Ag. CG also assured staff of his plan to give attention to sport, as it was key in the continuous fitness of all firefighters.

“Henceforth, I will make sure that sporting activities, including competitions are given the attention they deserve.”

Karebo, who acknowledged that the size of shoe left behind by his predecessor was big, said he would require the support of all officers and men of the service so as to fit into that shoe.

He, however, warned that any act of indiscipline was not to be tolerated from officers and men of the service.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that on Dec. 30, 2021 President Muhammadu Buhari Karebo as the acting controller-general of the FFS.

Karebo takes over from Liman Ibrahim, the outgoing controller-general who was appointed on March 29, 2019. (NAN)
