The Lagos State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Habib Aruna has offered his condolences to the families of those who lost their lives to the tanker explosion that occurred along the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway on Thursday.
The Governor added that he was consoled by the fact that the number of lives saved was more than those who died, thanks to the quick response of the emergency agencies.
He urged people of the state to always give access to emergency responders during such incidents, to prevent avoidable loss of lives and property.
During his visit to the scene of the accident yesterday, the Governor said “I want to commiserate with all the families of those that have lost their lives. We never wish for incidents like this but again we take solace in the fact that we were able to save more lives,”
“I also want to appeal to Lagosians that we don’t like to see onlookers; there is a need to always give way for our first responders and all our agencies to save lives quickly and that is the whole essence of having the Response Unit,” he added.
Ambode thanked the people for their patience and assured them that the state government would continue to put measures in place to mitigate such incidents in future. Although more than 50 vehicles were burnt in the accident, he commended the response time from officials which he said was less than three minutes.
The governor said, “I want to praise all our agencies – the Fire Service, the Rapid Response Squad (RRS) and also the Lagos State Emergency Management Agency (LASEMA) Response Unit; this is what we have been saying about investing in some of these infrastructure and equipment. Nobody knows when this kind of incident will happen next but the most important thing is that our response time should be up and running and be able to save lives.”
