    THAT'S WHY WE MUST LEARN TO SPEAK TO OUR DAY BEFORE SETTING OUT ON ANY FORM JOURNEY (FAR OR NEAR).
    SPEAK WORDS LIKE:
    'MY DAY IS BLESSED; LINES ARE FALLING UNTO ME IN PLEASANT PLACES. THERE'S NO ACCIDENT NOR PERIL ON MY PATH; I ONLY WALK IN PREORDAIND PATHWAYS ON BLESSING.............. I'M PROTECTED FROM ALL EVIL'.
    AND BELIEVE ME, THESE WORDS AND ANGELS WILL GO AHEAD OF U TO MAKE EVERY CROOKED PATHS SMOOTH FOR U!!


    ANYWAYS, THIS MAY SEEMS EASY, BUT IT DOES AND SURELY WORKS!!!


    MAY THE SOULS OF THE DEPARTED REST IN PEACE AND MAY GOD GRANT THEIR LOVE ONES FORTITUDE TO BEAR THE LOSS. AND I WISH THE INJURED FOLKS A PROMPT RECOVERY.

    This is sad but Linda clearly said the guy's brakes failed, which then had a domino affect. I'm not saying the roads shouldn't be fixed, but that wasn't necessarily the cause of the accident.

    May the soul of all the faithful departed through the mercy of God rest in peace. Let me use this medium to plead with the governor of Anambra to fix that road where the accident occured.that's my alma mata and while in school, that road was pretty much in a terrible state which attracted a whole lot of road mishaps.After 4years,I recently passed by that junction,and I realised that road has even gotten worst with erosion consuming most parts. What ever happened with the funds the federal government released to tackle erosion in the east? Including anambra.? I am certain that if that road was in a good state, this incidence wldv been avoided.

    The truth is UNIZIK junction is a major junction with a lot of traffic so you should start braking the speed long before you get there. a lot of okada and truck drivers NEVER do this. its just common sense! I drive through that junction daily and i wonder why they drive that way despite the high volume of humans there. Such a tragedy. I wish the truck driver died alone.
