Ojuelegba Tragedy: Unlatched Containers Must Leave Our Roads

Ojuelegba Tragedy: Unlatched Containers Must Leave Our Roads

By Abdulkabir Olatunji

There are certain things that should not happen. A container falling and crushing people to death at Ojuelegba should not have happened yesterday. Why? It had happened about 2 times before in recent years in the same location and several times in other locations. The Lagos State Government, Federal Road Safety Commission and every other agency involved in securing our roads should have prevented it with strict enforcement of our road safety laws.

Sometimes, Nigerians feel helpless about the problems that confront us but I disagree on this score. It is something we should not tolerate and we should do something about. What have I done? I have tagged the governor on Twitter over this demanding something be done and I think you all can do the same or at the very least promote a campaign to raise awareness and demand that this does not happen again.

Support the #SayNoToUnlatchedContainers Campaign.

Share this on social media and tag the relevant government officials at state and federal level.

Enough is enough and any of us can be a victim of this. The time to take action is now.
