    The Osun Sector Commander, Kudirat Ibrahim gave the advice in a chat with Muhabarishaji on the heels of the accidents that occurred on the Gbongan-Ibadan road, Osogbo last week.

    She also maintained that the road users ought to take personal responsibility because excessive speeding by vehicles may cause more harm to the people.

    “There is no point in carrying out continuous reminders and the commission cannot do route lining from Gbongan to Osogbo. We are always sensitising on the need to reduce their speed limit and slow down to soothe the conditions of the roads because there are junctions and markets located on this stretch of road from Gbongan to Osogbo.
