    Sad and tragic! Endemic porverty and illiteracy responsible for the urgly development. But on a more cursory look, I think
    blames ought to be heaped on the door steps of the govt for failling 2 address some of these societal challenges. I believe if our roads were working, there would not have been any accident. Again, other nations of the world use rail transport to covey petroleum products, I wonder why the Nigerian govt is yet to toe such part.
