Governor Takes Strong Action After This Fatal Accident That Led To The Death Of People In His State


Accident happens sometimes for some unforeseen reasons that may be out of the control of human beings but sometimes it could be due to carelessness on the part of some drivers.

Sometimes the nature of the accident can be mild or even fatal depending on luck and the way the drivers involved tried to control their vehicles when the ugly incident is happening. 

If the drivers are able to exercise a reasonable control on their vehicles, the accident may be mild. If not, then it could be fatal as the one recorded yesterday in one of the six South West States in Nigeria.

The fatal accident occurred in Ogun State yesterday which led to the unfortunate death of six victims who could not make it alive after the sad accident. The accident was said to have occurred as a result of brake failure by a tanker which made the tanker to fall from an overhead bridge and explode causing serious fire outbreak along Kuto-Okemosan road in Ogun state. The fire was so severe that it took men of the fire service a hectic moment and a long time to battle to put it off even as more victims sustained burn injurie.

Consequently, Governor Abiodun decided to ban tankers from using the overhead bridges in Ogun State henceforth. The ban according to Abiodun is to forestall future reoccurrence of such life-taking accidents so as to ensure public safety. Abiodun announced that there will be severe penalties for any defaulters who may go against the ban going forward.

Tankers/trucks should ply at night only: why not implement it?

There have been several calls for tankers which carry fuel and other highly inflammable liquids and other trucks to ply the roads at night only. The idea is that it will help to reduce the rate of fatal accidents leading to deaths which these long vehicles normally cause during the day when people are many on the roads going about their business.

But, why have the federal government led by Muhammadu Buhari and various state governments not implemented that ever since? If at all they value human lives very well, it is the way to go. 

Let the tankers and other trucks move at night only when many people are out of the roads. That will help to reduce these accidents that keep costing human lives. 

Tankers and trucks usually get involved in accidents and such accidents are always fatal leading to the loss of lives. Why not stop them from moving in the day and allow them to move only at night?
