Sanwo Olu Visits Scene of Train Accident, Reveals Causes, and Solutions.

Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo Olu, visited Oshodi area of Lagos State today after a moving train and commuter bus collided.

The driver and passengers of the bus escaped death at whisker.

The governor visited the scene of the accident alongside Minister for Transportation, Rotimi Ameachi, and other stakeholders in the transportation sector.

He also revealed the possible causes and solutions to the accident.

“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 a 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.”

The truth is that all the railway crossing in the city of Lagos, except the one at Ashade market / Guinness, are all death traps with no visible safety measures to alert motorists or pedestrians of oncoming trains.

There was a time, rail crossing barriers and signals where available at every crossing to warn motorists, where the automated barrier will close and prevent this kind of occurrence. But lack of maintenance and sabotage has taken such a safety away.
