  1. I dont think our minister of transportation knows what his job entails, cos i dont knw why this pmt company is still running. They should av been banned same way dana air was banned. Its like 3 major accidents in 1 month, what the heck??

  2. Abeg all dis transportation na rituals dem de take dis people do.Its dia usual yearly sacrifice.May God help us all.

  3. Peace mass transit ltd enough of this blood shedding of innocent souls, seek for blood elsewhere. And for the travelers why are you still boarding their vehicles? Please count your teeth with your tongue.

    • Dana air was banned for a while after multiple crashes , the govt banned them for a while to get their act together. They were reinstated after serious repairs and services were done. PMT needs to be banned for 2 yrs or more.

  4. This PMT is just sending innocent people to their early graves. Even if the Gvt do not ban the company, can‘t people ban it by themseves I mean, by stop patronising them? For BADNESS sake, Is that the only transport company around?
    RIP to the dead.

    SMH…

  5. But why is it always pmt bus? Does this mean that the pmt transportation company’s management is neglecting to service their buses? This is getting too much

  6. May the souls of the dead road crash victims rest in peace and at the bosom of the Almighty. Indeed, it is sad to imagine the huge economic and psychological burden road crash bring to families of the victims especially in a country like Nigeria where most travelers are not covered by any appropriate or efficient insurance policy. Certainly, it is an indisputable fact that many incidents of road crash have been associated with PEACE Mass Transport Company and it is least surprising that many negative views have been expressed against the Management of Peace Mass. Indeed, the situation calls for a thorough investigation in the operations of Peace mass to enable the company improve its accident prevention measures especially on those that relate to human errors. Whilst acknowledging that no preventable road death should be allowed, it is also important to state that the Management of Peace mass must be highly disturbed about these ugly incidents as they add no credit to its image but only deplete its assets. However, any objective analyst on road safety ought to know that some of these incidents are unpreventable because of the poor conditions of Nigerian roads. Infact, road crashes are not peculiar to Peace mass but for its huge fleet operations which may be about the biggest in Nigeria, so it sure takes its proportionate share of road mishaps. This is really why when a vehicle of Peace mass gets involved in a road crash; it appears as if all their vehicles are unsafe. In as much as such conclusions on Peace mass are not very correct, there is great need for the company to take apt steps to improve on its safety practices. The recent step of installing speed limiters in over 300 vehicles in its fleet is highly commendable but this is not enough. The peace mass drivers need proper monitoring, observance of good rest to avoid fatigue and special driving lessons. Given the highly beneficial services the Peace Mass renders to millions of road users in Nigeria at relative affordable rates and the dearth of alternative transportation companies that wide reach, it is obvious that Peace mass has become a necessity. Thus, the need to ensure that its management engages in safer road use practices cannot be over emphasized. I suggest the Management of Peace mass conducts proper research on road crashes involving its vehicles, seek a special partnership initiative with the Management of the FRSC that will assist it in reorienting its drivers and modernize its operations to fit acceptable standard practices of fleet operations. Again, Peace Mass vehicles are not crash magnets but its Management should take immediate steps to enhance the safety of its passengers and vehicles whilst offering its passengers a channel to report its defaulting drivers.
