Kogi to establish trauma centre

Kogi State government  has said that  it will soon establish a trauma centre along the Okene-Lokoja Road in the state.

The State deputy governor, Yomi Awoniyi, stated this when he received  the  state Sector Commander of the Federal Road Safety Corps(FRSC) Mr Charles Abochi,  at  his office, in Lokoja.

The deputy governor, who described the state as a gate-way state with 85 per cent of the traffic in the state being transient, said the government is working towards converting the SURE-P hospital in Osara into a mini-trauma centre to cater for victims of accidents along the stretch of Okene-Lokoja -Abuja Road

Awoniyi, who noted that vehicles from 26 states in Nigeria crisscross the state on a daily basis, said the situation is responsible for the  number of accidents on the state highways, adding that lawlessness and bad habits of some motorists on the nation’s highways are some of the factors responsible for the increasing number of accidents on the roads.
He, however, expressed  optimism that the new sector commander will bring his wealth of experience to bear in reducing road crashes in the state.
