The gubernatorial Candidate of the Allied People’s Congress, APM during the 2019 general election in Ogun state has enjoined the state government to immediately swing into action to curb further accidents.
Akinlade advised that the government to immediately shut all cylinders or gas, or maintenance/welding shops in the state pending the time when the source of the adulterated gas would be ascertained.

It is pertinent for the state government to immediately swing into actions by isolating the sources of the cylinders or gas, shut down all air conditioning, maintenance/welding shops in the state. Then carry out a fact finding oversight of all helium, nitrogen, CO2, Argon, hydrogen etc. sources in the state without further delay”.
