Ekiti state governor, Ayo Fayose, yesterday night visited Ekiti state teaching hospital where some students of the Ekiti state University who survived a fatal accident that killed 8 of their colleagues, are being treated.
The accident occurred when the EKSU students’ cab and an 18- passengers BUS collided along the NNPC-Iwokoro Ekiti State University yesterday evening. Speaking at the hospital, Fayose described the incident as unfortunate.
“I sympathize with them. It’s unfortunate. It’s not a good news. It’s one too many. We are saddened We have to take solace in God. Reckless driving and overspending has cost us eight lives. And some others in intensive care unit. I just want to commit them into the hands of God because there is nothing to say for ow rather than to pray that God should console the families and the people of Ekiti state”he said.
