He underscored Governor Alex Otti's commitment to ensuring the safety of Abia citizens and residents by addressing any threats to their safety promptly.

Furthermore, Nnanna highlighted Governor Alex Otti's administration's efforts in providing necessary equipment to prevent and control fires across the state.
