The Chairman, Special Committee on Fire Safety Matters, Hon. Oguntola Mudashiru Toogun has charged Proprietors and Managing Directors of Hotels and Hospitality Industries in the State to be conscious of any act that can ignite fire in their establishments and take proactive step against it.
Hon. Toogun gave the charge while on a sensitisation tour to hotels and hospitality industries in Osogbo. He explained that precaution is not only better than cure but rather safer and cheaper in all ways hence the setting up of the committee.
Hon. Toogun commended the State Governor, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola for setting a pace for other states to follow, especially by setting up the committee on fire safety matters whose impact at reducing fire outbreak in the State is being felt.
He further explained that the Governor was concerned with the life and property of the citizenry in the State hence the reason for sensitisation across the State.

In their separate remarks, the Managing Directors of Heritage Hotel, Alh. Mashood Owoade, City Dwellers, Mr. Sunday Opatola, Atlantis Event Centre, Mr. Samuel Adodo and Leisure Spring, Mr. Abiodun Odebunmi commended Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola for the providing the enabling environment for their businesses to strive.
