The National Chairman of the National Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG-PTD), Otunba Salmon Akanni Oladiti has commiserated with families of those who lost their lives in the tanker accident that occurred Thursday in Lagos.
This was contained in statement signed by Oladiti and issued on Friday.
“The National Chairman and entire members of NUPENG PTD hereby commiserate with the families of people that lost their lives in the fire incident that took place yesterday evening following a crash involving a tanker that fell and caught fire on the Otedola bridge on the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway thereby causing loss of lives and properties.
“This is a most unfortunate occurrence because in the recent past, such calamities have been avoided as members of the NUPENG /PTD have been collaborating with the FRSC and other law enforcement agencies in observing minimum safety standards on the highways and engaging in training and retraining of our members.
“All efforts will be put in place to ensure that this kind of disaster does not occur again on our roads. We sincerely mourn the dead and share the pains of affected families, the Lagos State Government and the entire people of Nigeria,” Oladiti stated.
