The Ondo State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) is appalled at the incessant bloody accidents that occur around the State-owned Adekunle Ajasin University, in Akungba Akoko.
The Publicity Secretary of the party, Alex Kalejaye in a statement made available to Western Post said, the chapter sympathized with the bereaved families and the university community over the unfathomable losses of students of the institution on Saturday.
The party prayed God to grant the deceased eternal rest.
According to his statement, “The pain of losing a dear soul, more so, 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 and articulated vehicles to ensure their vehicles are in good condition behind 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, 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.”
