Indiscipline Of Drivers Cause Frequent Tanker Fire In Lagos – Ambode

Accidents occurring on the Nigerian roads on a monthly basis often result in the death of thousands of Nigerians. In spite of the massive awareness and campaigns, the rate of accidents continues to escalate.

In the wake of the recent tanker accident which occurred in , the governor of the , Akinwumi Ambode, has given his thoughts on the possible causes of frequent tanker accidents.

He gave an account of the latest ordeal in the states, “Around 1am, a tanker loaded with 33,000 litres of petrol fell from the Ipaja bridge and spilled all its contents covering almost five streets here.

“In the last four hours, all our emergency agencies have been effectively on the ground and we have been able to manage and control consequences of what 33,000 litres of petrol would have done to this neighbourhood.

“Thank God, there has not been any loss of lives, but again, there are victims whose shops were destroyed.

“As of the last count, the agencies have been able to report that everything has been put under control. We’ve also recorded two other incidences, just like this one in other parts of overnight; one in Badagry and the other one in the Ojo area.

“It would also mean that our tanker drivers have to start to do something about their operations. We cannot continue to record loss of lives and property because our tanker drivers ‎are not disciplined.”

Thus, according to the number one citizen of Lagos State, frequent tanker explosions in the state, that usually lead to fire and loss of lives and property, must be blamed on carelessness and indiscipline of drivers.
