The Catholic Bishop of Awka Diocese, His Lordship Most Rev. Paulinus Ezeokafor has commiserated with the families of victims of last Sunday 31 May 2015 tanker fire incident at Upper
Iweka park in Onitsha Anambra State.

Bishop Ezeokafor who gave out his condolence message at St. Patrick Catholic Cathedral, Awka reminded Christians that they are on transit in this world. He urged them to always get prepared noting that death was a price every human being must pay.
According to Bishop Ezeokafor, 'Dear brethren, the world is a market place, I am calling on all of us to live for one another. Let us go ahead and reconcile with one another. We should know we are in a market place. Death can knock at any time, I am seriously pained because that carnage would had been averted if not for the recklessness of the truck driver.
We are here to buy and go.
'Just look at how people are dying on daily basis, accident here and there.
I want our people to understand that the world should not be taken seriously, let us think about life after death.
'We should be concern about our souls and always endeavor to ask this pertinent question Where are we going to after our journey on earth? What will the people we are leaving behind remember us with? Will they speak good of us when we are gone? Are we in good terms with one another? Christians should reflect on these questions. I think everybody should bury his or her ego and ask for forgiveness.
'We should also forgive those that offended us. Imagine how these innocent souls ended their journey on earth. Honestly, this is cruelty. They were consumed by the raging inferno caused by a reckless driver. Yes, he was so reckless, if not there are other places he should've diverted the truck . Why the park?,' Bishop Ezeokafor queried.
The visibly sober Catholic prelate, while praying for the quick repose of their souls, prayed God to grant the families the fortitude to bear the loss
Also National Coordinator of the Transformation Ambassadors of Nigeria (TAN) and CEO Capital Oil, Dr. Ifeanyi Ubah has sent a message of condolence to the families of the fire incident.
Dr. Ubah who in a press release described the fire disaster as a national tragedy also condoled with the government and people of Anambra State, pointing out that the incident was a very unfortunate one.
The TAN boss expressed sadness over the heavy loss of life and property caused by the tanker accident which later led to a serious fire incident in the commercial city.
He however urged all those who lost their loved ones and properties during the incident to take heart even as he prayed for the repose of the soul of those who lost their lives.
He renewed his position on the need to have in place parks for heavy duty vehicles across the country which according to him would not only enhance smooth flow of traffic but also prevent
future reoccurrence of such ugly accidents.
The oil Magnet, revealed that it was an early realization of that fact that made him to construct a park for heavy duty vehicles in Lagos which he noted would
bring respite to motorists in the city if fully utilized.
Dr. Ubah also commended the patriotic zeal of rescue workers, medical personnels and others sympathizers who
rose to the occasion of assisting the victims without which the casualties would have been heavier.
