This is a disaster that should have been easily prevented by just common sense undecided

Instead of them (government & contractor) to either buy or rent a crane designed to aid street light repair or fixing work , they are busing using metal scaffold shocked

Rip to the dead embarassed

Trust me, if the super Eagles can be very disciplined and calculative with play, they'd qualify for the AFCON semi final tomorrow.

That's my take on the issue.

A cherry picker or a better designed ladder could be used.

This is where our tradesmen can show their ability.

Rest in peace to the dead.

Well, to be perfectly honest, this is my own opinion, without offending anyone who might think differently, from my point of view, looking at it from a different perspective, and without condemning anyones' views or by trying to objectify them while considering each and everyone's valid opinion, I honestly beleive that I completely forgot what I was going to say......

This is the sort of low IQ action I was talking about on the another thread.. these people don't understand why street light repair platforms are on rubber wheels and need to create a faradays cage when you are working with electricity

Like seriously, metallic ladder to work with electricity? It must be true that who the gods want to kill, they first make mad.

How do you climb an electric light pole with a metallic ladder?

Thus country don tire person self

Anything goes in naija. Were they putting on their ppe? Almost everything requires rubber ppe when working on electrical installations, rubber boots, rubber hand gloves, plastic crash helmets.... These would've saved them even if scaffold was metal.
Scaffold,at least, shudda been aluminium.

Well RIP
