Senate calls for stricter enforcement of the ban on movement of tankers during the day

In the aftermath of the petrol tanker fire disaster in Lagos in which 12 persons died, the Senate has called for stricter enforcement of the ban on movement of tankers and articulated vehicles during the day

This resolution was reached after a motion was raised in plenary on Wednesday by the representative of Lagos east senatorial district, Gbenga Ashafa.

Standing on order 52, Senator Gbenga Ashafa brought before his colleagues on Wednesday, the urgent need for stricter enforcement of the rules banning the movement of articulated vehicles in the day time and the need for drivers to respect road safety rules.

The Senate therefore called for investigation into the circumstances surrounding the incidence and those guilty should be prosecuted.
