Ex-Nollywood star, Grace Oyifie Agbo, now a firefighter with the Federal Fire Service, is a gazelle that cannot be sidestepped.
The Okpokwu Local Government Area of Benue State born beauty was for several years a regular face on TV screens with her make belief roles in a horde of movie bestsellers like Black Out, Mr Potosky, Lost Pride, Deadly Desire, Palace of Sorrow, Ada-Ide-Ichaka, Haunted Palace, Village Don and The Calabash among several others.
Just under four years that she switched to fire fighting she has shown that her switch is not a fluke and that she is dedicated, loyal and passionate about firefighting. Just recently, Grace got promoted to the rank of Assistant Superintendent of Fire1 (ASF1) at the Federal Fire Service Headquarters, Abuja where she is serving.
The amiable lady, who is of the Special Duty Unit under the Inspectorate, Investigation and Enforcement (IIE) Department of the Service, said that she took her new role of firefighting as a result of the passion she has for the job which has given her the opportunity to contribute to the society by teaching people how to prevent fire and the things to do when there is a fire through her social media handle and also through going to organisations, schools and other agencies with her unit.
Her unit is saddled with the responsibility of inspecting buildings to see the level of their fire safety compliance, carry out training, issue fire certificate, carry out excursions etc.
Days back Grace took to her Instagram page to congratulate herself. She is no doubt very happy about her promotion. In her active days in Nollywood, Grace mixed with majority of the who is who in the industry but she has put all that aside to serve her fatherland diligently through the Federal Fire Service.
She is quite determined to keep doing what she is doing such that she will get to the apex of the Federal Fire Service at God’s appointed time.
