The Ilorin Area Office of the Nigerian Television Authority (NTA), was gutted by fire late Tuesday night, July 21.
Kwara State Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq who was among the first responders, said the entire facility would have been destroyed but for the timely intervention of the Federal and the State fire services.
A statement released by Rafiu Ajakaye, the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, read;
“This incident again underscores the need for everyone to do more to prevent such in the future. We commend the alertness of those who quickly called the fire services and our firemen for their prompt response and professionalism. We will continue to do more to support not just the fire service but also all other emergency responders.
“Everybody must be more alert. Our fire service will continue to be proactive by not only putting out the fire but also educating the people. However, we urge citizens to also take serious interest in how to curtail fire incidents which are becoming rampant.
“As an administration, we will also be willing to offer whatever support we can within the confines allowed under the ethics of the trade (journalism).”
