  1. Within some few days we’ve lost some numbers of v.I.p in a road accident, that show how bad our roads are, a good number of poor people loose their lives on these roads which we don’t get to know about. I really sympathise with the family of the departed souls & I think this will ginger our govt to fix all these death traps called raods

    • Road fatalities have claimed so many lives both in recent times and in the past. Road accidents have caused pains in hearts of Nigerians. Our drivers should learn to use the roads. It is not condition of the roads but our driving habits. May all the departed rest in peace and does in hospitals quick recovery (Amen)
