sad

A lot of these PHCN stuff will just be climbing electric polls without correct PPE as if their blood is a non conductor.

I hope his unfortunate death will serve as a warning to the others

Wait..... somebody has to take the blame....


Let's blame Buhari because he created hardship that made this man get employed in a field he's not competent with...

No! GEJ should be blamed he looted the funds that would've used to save this man's life....


Maybe we should blame APC for selling to us an old senile man....


This isn't adding up, Maybe blaming PDP will do, for ruling Nigeria for 16yrs and had noting to show off for....


Maybe I shouldn't blame anybody but the entire youth for not being sensible enough to standup and be bold enough to fight for the unjustly ruling by old men who were supposed to be retiring at their age!!!

The dangers associated with this sort of work is still not enough to make the government and management of the power companies to increase the pay and allowance of these workers. Nigeria My country!

Annoyingly, these technicians will climb a pole without the appropriate PPE.

They always go with the mentality that they have been doing it for years and nothing can ever go wrong.

Safety culture in this country is too poor

He wasted his life out of his own stupidity
