Veteran Journalists Solicit Use Of Pedestrian Tracks On Roads

Considering the dangers facing pedestrians, especially pregnant women who have to cross both the express ways and other constructed roads in Port Harcourtmetropolis and environs, veterans journalists in  RiversState have appealed to the general public to make use of the beautiful foot-tracks provided along the roads.

At their monthly congress held recently at the NUJ premises, the  veteran journalists lamented the fate of many pregnant women and others who loath the idea of using the foot tracks and are in danger of being crushed by hit and run drivers while trying to cross the ever busy roads to reach their destinations.

Speaking to this medium immediately after the congress the scribe of the league of veteran journalist, Rivers state branch, Senibo Dr. Augustus Cookey, urged the public to use the pedestrian bridges and foot tracks on the roads where they are available to prevent accidents.

The veteran journalists appeal came on the heels of the recent accident where a pregnant woman was knocked down by a hit and run motorist and was rushed to unknown hospital by sympathisers

Senibo Cookey also appealed to traders on the streets of Mile one and Three markets and Creek road market to desist from displaying their wares on the provided foot tracks built by the Rivers state government and called on the environment ministry to bring to book any defaulter as a deterrent to others. ###
