He recently revealed this in a statement issued by the Corps Public Education Officer, Assistant Corps Marshal, Bisi Kazeem, in Abuja.
According to him, public office holders should emulate the minister’s proactive approach to issues of national importance, because that is the way to go.
He added the swift removal was key because the gas tanker fell around the Ibafo area of the expressway and caused undue gridlock which saw passersby stranded during the crossover night.
His words, “While the FRSC worked out modalities for the immediate removal of the obstruction, the minister’s intervention was critical to the evacuation of the tanker.”
