The Nigerian Patriots, an NGO, has accused a section of the media of discrediting the Controller General of the Federal Fire Service, Dr Ibrahim Liman Alhaji, for mischievous reasons.

In a statement signed by its spokesperson, Dr Sylvester Mbonu, at the weekend, the group cautioned the sponsors to thread with caution and rethink their intentions.

The report had it that the CG had refused to retire after spending 44 years in service.

However, the statement said; “the report was not true. The fact remains that CG FFS, Dr Ibrahim Liman Alhaji, was born in 1960, joined the Federal Fire Service in 1986.

“He was due for retirement in December 2020 but got an extension by the presidency for 18 months which is due for June 2022.”

The statement assured that the fire service boss will retire and exit service in June 2022′

“From inception, when he took over as the Controller General of Federal Fire Service, the service took a new shape as brand new fire service trucks were purchased, professional foreign training and courses were offered to both junior and senior staff of the service, transparent recruitment and promotion of officers were recorded.

“It is obvious that the intention was to maliciously blackmail patriotic citizens. Dr Ibrahim is a patriotic citizen who has never shown interest in contesting elections of any kind, his interest remains serving his beloved country. ” the statement added.
