Nigerians woke up this morning with news that the federal government wants to return toll gates on Nigerian roads.
Briefing State House correspondents at the end of the weekly Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting presided over by President Muhammadu Buhari, the Minister of Works, Mr. Babatunde Fashola, said designs for the toll gates had already been made.
 “There is no reason why we can’t toll, there was a policy of the government to abolish tolls or as it were, dismantle toll plaza but there is no law that prohibits tolling in Nigeria today. We expect to return toll plazas, We have concluded their designs of what they will look like, what materials they will be rebuilt with, what new considerations must go into them.
“What we are looking at now and trying to conclude is how the bank end runs.”
He said that the government was also considering to eliminate the payment of cash by introducing electronic mode of payment. The Minister further disclosed that government needed to acquire more lands to expand the width of the toll gates as it proposed to have a ten-lane.
While some Nigerians welcomed this idea, many are of the opinion that this should not be.
What about you?
