Lagos State government has sought the co-operation of tanker drivers over incessant accidents, reckless driving and parking on the highways, which often claim many lives.

The state’s Commissioner for Energy & Mineral Resources, Mr. Olalere Odusote, who spoke at the stakeholders’ engagement meeting with key representatives of the Downstream Energy Sector to deepen safety awareness of operators, said that the Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu-led administration was keen to see that the downstream sector continues to flourish in the state but operators must stay within the framework of safety provided by the regulators and the laws of the state.

Odusote said that the workshop was put together to address the recurrence of such hazardous incidents, and to seek effective and lasting solutions that align with the interests of all stakeholders.
