Soludo Pledges to Stop Fuel Tanker Fire in Anambra

Must read

Anambra State Governor-elect, Prof Chukwuma Soludo has vowed to end fuel tanker incidents in Anambra State.

Soludo, a former Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), made this promise in reaction to Friday’s petrol tanker fire incident in Onitsha, which consumed properties worth billions.

He expressed deep sorrow at the magnitude of material losses suffered by the victims, lamenting the incessant tanker explosion in the Onitsha axis and other cities around the country.

He said: “Soludo assured that a lasting solution to prevent future occurrences must be fashioned out to safeguard precious lives and material losses in future, saying this current trend cannot continue

He, however, commended President Muhammadu Buhari and Governor Willie Obiano for their immediate reactions and condolences to the victims.

“He equally called on relevant government institutions saddled with the responsibilities of providing succour for cases of this nature to provide the needed relief and support to ameliorate the losses, pains and agonies suffered by the victims arising from the unfortunate incident.”

He also commended the gallantry of the youths, fire service officials and other security personnel who came immediately to the scene to stem the spread of the inferno.
