The death of 19 passengers in an accident that occurred on the Kano, Zaria Road late Thursday night, has thrown President Muhammadu Buhari into a mourning mood, DAILY POST has gathered.

The President while reacting to the ugly development said he is devastated and saddened by the unfortunate tragedy that claimed the lives of passengers who happily left their homes without any idea that it was going to be their last day on earth.

Buhari took to a statement conveyed by his media aide, Garba Shehu to lament the frequency of road accidents in the country.

According to him, the situation though worrisome, calls for greater reflection on the importance of safety standards.

“I understand that the accident was blamed on over-speeding and this account worries me deeply. Our drivers should take safety regulations seriously; they have the responsibility to protect their passengers. It’s unfortunate that ours is a country where, despite regular public enlightenment programmes by road safety officials, our recalcitrant drivers treat the issue with indifference,” the President lamented.

He admonished road users on adherence to safety standards, insisting that “regulations can go a long way to protect lives.”

The President extended his condolences to the Government of Kano State and the families of those who died in the accident.
