A truck fell along Kabba / omuo-ekiti



Yesterday I traveled from the North to Ado-Ekiti to witness the inauguration of my newly elected Ekiti Governor, it was quite an adventurous trip for me to mention something: the Toyota Corolla, which was on the road after a 20 minute drive , the unreliable Honda Ball Joint, which by the track at a carelessness, the impressive sights of the ongoing construction of Dangote Obajana / Kabba road, the travelers an alternative bypass of the Okene / Kabba route, the Ekiti child (on the roadside), the 12 pieces of bananas for 100 naira (equivalent to 400 naira in Abuja) and the like sold ...

By the way, a truck traveling southwest to northern Nigeria was derailed along the devastating Kabba / Omuo-Ekiti highway (specifically in Ikoyi-Ijumu in Kogi State).

As I hypothesized, the ugly incident occurred because of the condition of the poorly maintained road, while the driver tried to track the large potholes to reach a frontal approach to the north ...

On average, ETA - Expected Arrival Time between Omuo-Ekiti to Kabba, Kogi State should not be more than 25 minutes at 120 km / h, but the ETA is now more than 1 hour, you can hardly "Pedal to the Metal "! !!

The first question that came to my mind when I saw the incident was, "What if an innocent vehicle passed the trailer?" But we thank God that nothing like this has happened.

It should be noted that most of the auto-crash incidence that has occurred in the past has often been due to poor roads ... However, I will not deny that the federal government has attempted to find all feasible means to Repairing the Transportation Infrastructure The nation, but I would like it to shift more interventional attention in remedying some of the deteriorated federal highways, such as the Omu-Ekiti / Kabba Road, which is one of the major links between southern and northern Nigeria.

Last but not least, I realize that this road has been in poor condition for several years without being repaired. I use this medium to reach Federal Road Maintenance Agency (FERMA) to give in to this wake up call.
