Written by Taiwo Adediran on September 21, 2015
Local councils in Kwara State have been urged to institute adequate measures to check indiscriminate building of filling stations in residential areas. The directive was given at the weekend by an adhoc committee of the State House of Assembly to control proliferation and location of filling stations in places dangerous to health of citizens and impose sanctions.
Chairman of the committee, Kamaldeen Fagbemi addressing a gathering in Bode-Saadu, headquarters of Moro Local Government, explained that collaboration between the Local Governments and the House of Assembly in this respect became imperative to avert tragedies that could attend wrong siting of petrol stations in the state.
