The Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Malam Musa Bello has come out to warn residents against bush burning and use of fireworks ahead of the Yuletide season.

Bello recently revealed this at the inauguration of the 2020 Dry Season Campaign on Fire Safety organised by the FCT Fire Service in collaboration with Tesodes Ventures.

According to him, officers and men of the fire service would be moving round the communities to ensure compliance, so Nigerians should heed the warning.

He added that fire disaster is usually more common in the Harmattan season, therefore the citizens must be careful.

His words, “The significance of this year’s campaign cannot be over emphasised as it coincides with the yuletide celebration where a lot of cooking takes place and fireworks displays by the youth.

“The minister has banned fireworks and indiscriminate bush burning.

“As we kick start this campaign, be assured that our officers from the various stations will be visiting the communities with this same message.

“I humbly plead with local chiefs to cooperate with them for the success of the exercise.”

“Incidentally, most fire outbreaks are caused by human errors either by omission or commission.

“If these errors are not checked, destruction of lives and property arising from fire outbreaks will continue to be on the increase.

“The principal objective of this year‘s Dry Season Fire Sensitisation programme is to deal with the specific root causes of fire outbreaks and how to curb the trend.

“We want an overall reduction of fire disasters in the FCT.”
