Recalling the flag-off of the 2022 ember months campaigns which have the theme: “Avoid Speeding, Unsafe Tyres to Arrive Safely,” Abdullahi warned motorists to observe traffic regulations, especially during the ember months when there are high volumes of vehicular movements on the roads.

“We are in the ember months and there is always a high volume of vehicles on the roads and it is only when drivers are more careful that we will reduce crashes on our roads.

“I appeal to motorists to be more patient while on the roads so that the carnage from crashed would be reduced to the barest minimum,” he appealed.
