|Why Accident During Yuletide? by Tailleur: 7:19am On Dec 24, 2020|
Why much Accident during Yuletide?_
A typical Nigerian will wake up then enter a FAULTY CAR with the saying that all shall be well (that is; Ogadinma, Oun gbogbo adara)
and that God will lead/guide (Chinedu, Allah zai tsare, Oluwa darimi/Oluwa tomisona) ok.
Furthermore, he overloads same car, drives at the SPEED OF LIGHT on a road decorated with national gullies and state POTHOLES.The motive behind the journey is mostly genuine no doubt but the means is quiet risky.
In as much as some Africans believe spirits of the underworld balance their accounts by year end, with lives(which i wont argue with you inorder not to derail) I am of the opinion that most road accidents during each Yuletide are man made (i.e Aba made, made in Lagos, you made & et cetra).
Nigerians just walk on egg shells and believe the result of one walking on zuma rock.
Your wife might own a car, your boyfriend might be a driver, your Dad, friend someone you know have something to do with an automotive technology (bike, "keke", car) Can you be their road safety Marshal? No one should DRINK & DRIVE.
OVERSPEEDING IS OVER KILLING,
If the government only has good roads on the tele, can I reduce the risk coming from my end when i drive so there can be less accident news on the tele?
Lets not act like every year end is a cursed end. Whereas it is just a change of date with same weather but an older&wiser you.
Compliments of the season!
