AbdulRazaq laments death of 17 Kwara students
Kwara State Governor, AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq, on Sunday lamented the death of 17 students in an auto crash on their way back to the state from Kano, describing the incident as one that could have been prevented.
“We, however, believe that we can avoid this calamity in the future. We reiterate our calls on the drivers to always check their speed, respect other road users, and put their vehicles in the best condition.
“Most accidents occur because our drivers often fail these three basic tests of safe driving,” the statement said.
“Besides, we call on our tertiary institutions which still require students to travel long distance for their post-UTME examination to please consider holding such test online to avert the necessity of travel.
