Akungba Crash: Ondo APC mourns victims, appeals to truck owners to caution drivers

The Ondo State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) is appalled at the incessant accidents that occur around the State-owned Adekunle Ajasin University, in Akungba Akoko.

The chapter sympathises with the bereaved families, and the university community over the unfathomable loses. It prays God to grant the deceased eternal rest.

The pain of losing a dear soul, moreso, a student, on whom the struggling parents must have expended so much resources and time, could better be imagined.

We appeal to owners of trucks to ensure their vehicles are in good condition before putting them for commercial engagements.

It is also pertinent that drivers are sufficiently trained, and cautioned against all forms of recklessness, particularly within towns and cities.

It is our view that the Ministry of Works should consider constructing bumps along that road, and others that constantly put the lives of our people in danger, to compel reduction in speed of articulated vehicles.

The chapter prays for peace, and wellbeing of the residents of the Sunshine State, urging them to be security conscious at all times.
