FEC approves N403m water tankers for Fire Service


The Federal Executive Council on Wednesday approved N403 million for the purchase of 15 water-carrying tankers for the Federal Fire Service.

The Minister of Interior, Abdulrahman Dambazzau, later told State House correspondents that the tankers had the capacity to be used as fire fighting trucks.

He explained that the procurement of the tankers was aimed at revamping the Service which, he said, had lacked equipment for a very long time.

The minister noted that the approval was in line with the 2016 budgetary provisions.

He said a lot of fire fighting equipment had already been procured from the N5.5 billion voted for such purpose in 2016.
