The Honourable Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola announced the reintroduction of tollgates on selected dual carriageways across the country, after the Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting in Abuja, on Wednesday, 4th August 2021

Consequently, many Nigerians have expressed concerns to reintroduce toll collections on the designated routes earmarked by the Federal government.

Gbolahan Olojede, an expert in Public policy analysis is of the opinion that paying N200 on a motorable road, is more money in his pocket.

Olojede made this know as a guest on CityTalks with Reuben Abati.

The Minister of works and Housing stated that cars would pay N200, SUVs and Jeeps N300, private buses N300, commercial buses N150, luxury buses and trucks N500.

According to him, for the project to be a successful programme, the government will have to communicate this in a “robust citizen’s education system,” and the citizens to understand it along that line.

In his view, the reason why the reintroduction of the tollgates is important is because the Federal government does not have enough resources to maintain federal roads.
