Oladele, while reacting to the June 29 tanker explosion on Otedola Bridge, Lagos, said the operators of the heavy-duty vehicles must be circumspect at all times.

Oladele further said tanker owners must ensure that their vehicles were in good condition to avoid unnecessary crashes.

“We implore them to maintain safety standards and ensure that they do not cut any corners as they go about their businesses,” he said.

He said NUPENG PTD and operators of haulage vehicles should conduct regular training for their drivers, and that the drivers must be taught to appreciate safety strategies.

“Tanker drivers must ensure contents in their vehicles are not dropping on the highways. It doesn’t take any effort for the high inflammable product to explode,” he said.
