All Progressives Congress, House of Representatives Candidate, Prince Lanre Sanusi has condoled with the Executive Governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu over the early morning train accident in Ikeja Area of Lagos State.
The House of Representative faithful who also mourned the victims, says act barbaric and was avoidable.
The frontline 2023 hopeful, commiserated with the families and friends of those, who died and critically injured in the mishap.
PLS said, “The train running between Lagos had become the only expectedly safe way to travel between Lagos. And now, this.”
He stated this in a condolence letter he signed on thursday night.
While condemning the dastardly act as palpable human errors, he called on the Federal Government to, as a matter of urgency, come up with measures to address these incidents.
Push News 24 International reports that no fewer than six people had died in the incident while several others were left injured and getting treatment at the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital, Ikeja.
Reacting to the accident through a message by his media aide, PLS prayed for the repose of the souls of the deceased.
According to him, ugly occurrences of this nature, do not portray Lagos State well among the comity of States.
The letter read in part, “My heart failed when I heard that story because I was wondering what would be the status-both emotional and physical, of the people inside that train and the staff bus.
“The train had become the only expectedly safe way to travel between Lagos. And now, this.
“… but this is a major one and it’s very disrupting. It’s very painful.
“First, my sympathy and my condolences go to the families of those who have lost their loved ones in such a painful incident.
I mourn these great Lagosians, who just lost their precious lives. These are people, who traveled and were almost at work.
“It could have been anybody-anybody’s brother, sister, son, or daughter. So, I’m very pained and wish such dastardly act won’t repeat in our dear State.
“I also pray for the quick recovery of those who were injured and are currently lying critically in the hospital.
“I don’t want to call this a wake-up call, because we have heard too many wake-up calls in this country. This is not a good story to be told about our ⁹country, Nigeria. The Minister of Transport needs to collaborate with the Lagos State Government in finding lasting solutions.
Too many bad stories have been told about this country and they are unending, and this calls for urgent attention.
“This is condemnable. This is barbaric. I, therefore, call on the Federal Government in power to rise up to the occasion to defend and protect hapless Nigerian citizenry.”
