Wada in company of large crew of media houses and stern looking policemen, had gone to the hospital to visit members of ASUU that were injured in the accident.
The ASUU leaders lamented that Wada's late response to the accident and the uncaring attitude he
allegedly displayed towards the union leaders involved in the accident was inhuman.
That rather than been remorseful he was trying to make a political gain out of their misfortune.
According to the leader of ASUU, Lagos State Chapter, Dr. Adekunle Idris, "We are surprised that a state governor could resort to telling lies because contrary to the claim by his spokesperson that he
showed care towards our colleagues, he did not.
"Somebody that did not stop after his convoy killed our leader; somebody that did not come to the hospital until some minutes to 5pm(on Tuesday) after the accident that happened around 11am could not be said to be caring.
"That was why we chased him out of the emergency ward of the hospital and we also prevented him from seeing Prof. Iyayi's corpse in the mortuary.
"We are not happy with the fact that he came very late to the hospital and the fact that when he came, his press crew attempted to take photograph and video record of Dr. Ilo, who is our national welfare
secretary. We stopped them because that was the height of insensitivity.
"Somebody that could not provide us with an ambulance cannot be said to be caring. We had to call UNIBEN for an ambulance that took Ilo to the UNIBEN Teaching Hospital while our colleagues from the Federal University, Lokoja, with the assistance of the vice- chancellor, gave us the ambulance that was used to convey the remains of Prof. Iyayi to Benin."
"Wada left the hospital gently, but some of his overzealous security aides tried to be naughty but we lectured them.The hospital workers and the residents of Lokoja who witnessed how we chased the governor away were happy."
Another ASUU leader, Adesola explained how the accident happened
He said, "It was actually the last of the governor's convoy that veered off the road and ran into a vehicle that was conveying Iyayi and others.
"When the governor's convoy came with noise and harassment, every1 on the road moved to the side of the road for them to pass but unfortunately, the governor's aide has told the world that an ASUU vehicle was avoiding a trailer and ran into their escort vehicle.
"What manner of reckless lying is that? The front of the ASUU bus remains intact except for the windscreen that broke. Iyayi was sitting at the back of the bus and the escort van ran into it.
The most annoying part is that the incident occurred around 11am and the governor did not even visit the hospital until around 5pm."He came with a large number of pressmen and security aides and was attempting to make some political capital out of our misfortune.
"We actually had to chase him away from the emergency ward where our welfare secretary was still receiving treatment."
However, the Special Adviser, Media and Strategy to Wada, Mr. Jacob Edi claimed that the ASUU leaders did not chase his boss away from the hospital, but stated that the union officials were not friendly.
