Nigeria’s most popular Governor, Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State has once again made his way to the media with an act that will further endear him to many more citizens.
A gas station located on Akure Road in Mugbagba area of Ado-Ekiti, Ekiti State capital, was on Sunday, January 8, razed along with other close residential building and business offices by a fire incident.
The Governor not minding his position, rolled up his sleeves and helped residents and members of the state Fire service to put out the fire which started from a burning petrol tanker at the Strive Energy Petrol Station, Ijigbo roundabout in Ado Ekiti, the state capital.
It was gathered that the fire broke out at about 4pm when a tanker off-loading fuel at the said filling station, began to emit thick smoke.
Ekiti State government has banned Petrol stations located within residential areas from further dispensing petrol. The petrol stations are to henceforth, sell diesel and kerosene only. The State governor, Mr. Ayodele Fayose gave the directive as a result of the fire outbreak.
Mr. Fayose, who rushed to the scene of the fire outbreak and promptly mobilised men of the State Fire Service to put out the fire described the incident as unfortunate. He added that government would take far-reaching decisions to avert a future recurrence.
The fire incidence, which spread from the petrol station to the nearby Mugbagba areas of the town before it was put out destroyed properties worth millions of naira but thankfully, no life was lost.
Below are some pictures of Governor Fayose putting out the fire alongside other residents of the area.
