Ashafa calls for probe of fuel tanker disaster in Lagos
In a statement yesterday, Ashafa empathised with relatives of the victims. He stressed that the gory sight of the disaster was absolutely heart breaking.
He, however, blamed the disaster on the failure of the operators of the tankers to obey safety requirements of the law provided by the Lagos State government.
According to Ashafa, “On my part as the Senator representing Lagos East, as far back as 2015, the very first motion I sponsored on the floor of the Eighth National Assembly was on the issue of ‘Fuel Tanker Tragedies on Nigeria’s Highways’, which led the upper chamber to call on the Federal Government and NNPC to take all measures to prevent future occurrences.”
