Lagos state governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has visited the scene of the train accident and said it was a pity that accident happened on the same day, stakeholders reached a consensus to close the gates into the arena.

The governor alongside the Minister of Transportation, Hon. Rotimi Amaechi, visited the scene few hours after the accident happened on Monday, September 14, at under bridge, Oshodi, Lagos.

Sanwo-Olu said, one of his administration concerns is to ensure commuters’ safety around the area, adding that the incident would strengthen his resolve to prevent a reoccurrence.

He, however, urged Lagosians to be safety conscious whenever they need to drive across the rail track, saying that If there is slow movement of vehicles at any railway bypass, they must keep a safe distance from the rail tracks.

Furthermore, Sanwo-Olu noted that he has rolled out advocacy on the issue and will continue to intensify efforts, as the safety of the people is paramount to him.

In his words:

“Today, I visited the scene of the accident at Oshodi involving a train and two vehicles in the company of the Minister of Transportation, Hon. Rotimi Amaechi. It is regrettable that this happened on the day stakeholders reached a consensus to close the gates into the arena.

“This is one of the concerns we have raised about commuters’ safety around the area. This accident should strengthen our resolve to prevent a reoccurrence.

“This is also a clarion call on our people to be safety conscious whenever they need to drive across the rail track.

“If there is slow movement of vehicles at any railway bypass, we must keep a safe distance from the rail tracks. We have rolled out advocacy on this and we will continue to intensify efforts. The safety of the people is paramount.”
