The Speaker of the Assembly, Olakunle Oluomo, made the call while responding to the submission of a member representing Odeda State Constituency, Hon. Oludaisi Elemide, during the plenary in Abeokuta.

Oluomo, who cited several cases of unavoidable deaths on roads in the state, called for adherence to safety measures by truck drivers.

He, therefore, directed the House Committee on Transportation to engage all transport agencies and leadership of unions regulating articulated vehicle on how to find a lasting solution to the menace.
