TANKERS BANNED FROM DAYTIME TRIPS BY GOVT.


The Anambra state government has banned the movement of fuel tankers during the daytime following the fatal incidents witnessed in the state in recent times.



Anambra state's Commissioner for Information, Don Adinuba said fuel tankers are only allowed to move within the state from 8 p.m. to 5a.m. He added that the restriction is to enable agencies like the Anambra State Fire Service, the Nigeria Police Force, the Federal Road Safety Corps, the Civil Defence, the Anambra Traffic Management Agency and other agencies to respond effectively and in good time.



The statement reads “Following the incessant collapse of trucks carrying petroleum products in Anambra State in recent times, including one which happened in Onitsha earlier today(Thursday), the Anambra State Government has decided to restrict the time which vehicles laden with petroleum products can move in the state.

“With effect from Saturday, November 2, 2019, such vehicles can be allowed to move within Anambra State from only 8 p.m. to 5 a.m.

“The restriction is to enable agencies like the Anambra State Fire Service, the Nigeria Police Force, the Federal Road Safety Corps, the Civil Defence, the Anambra Traffic Management Agency and indeed all other security, law enforcement and safety agencies to respond effectively and in good time to emergencies created by such accidents.”
