Accidents can occur anytime, but what happens when there is an accident and one of the good samaritans who comes to your aid is a governor?
The Executive Governor of Ogun state, Ibikunle Amosun, was seen carrying out a kind act that has warmed the heart of many Nigerians.
The governor had been driving along Akure-Ondo road, in Ondo State, when he came upon an accident scene, he came down from his vehicle and proceeded to assist the victims.

According to a post shared on the Governor's Facebook page by his senior special assistant on media, Adejuwon Soyinka, this is what transpired:
"Ogun State Governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun, on Friday, stopped to personally coordinate the rescue of three accident victims along the ever busy, Akure-Ondo Road in Ondo State.
Governor Amosun who came across the accident scene while returning from the swearing in ceremony of Governor Rotimi Akeredolu in Akure, stopped his convoy and personally led efforts to retrieve the accident victims from the bush.
The accident involved a Volkswagen car with registration number, Ondo BDR-223XA, painted in the taxi colour of Ondo State and a MAN Diesel truck, which apparently ran the taxi off the road.
The three female victims of the accident appeared to have sustained injuries on the head and this prompted the Ogun State governor to direct his security team to immediately take them to the General Hospital in Ondo town.
Although the accident victims were rejected at the public health facility because the workers were said to be on strike, Governor Amosun then directed that they should be taken to a private hospital in Ondo town where they were admitted and treated."
