FERMA Wants Toll Gates Re-introduced In Nigeria by Ptimes: 9:00pm On Dec 17, 2012
In what seems a discourse to set the stage for the re-emergence of toll gates in the country, the Federal Roads Maintenance Agency, FERMA, on Monday said the resuscitation of toll gates in the country would boost revenue generation to enable government repair federal roads.

The head of the agency in Osun State, Isaac Omojeingbesi, made this disclosure in an interview in Osogbo, the state captal.

He expressed support for a re-introduction of toll gates, saying the initiative would help generate more money for road maintenance as well as enhance government’s ability to repair bad roads across the country, a stance both the Federal and State Governments have always held.

But the re- introduction of toll gate fees has been nothing but disturbing for majority of road users who usually complain of the hazards of toll gates.

In Lagos State for instance, the Lekki toll gate fee, introduced by the state government, was greeted with animosity, with residents complaining that the amount of money they are made to part with is a rip off; and road users saying the traffic and the attendant health hazard the collection of money at the toll gate causes is heinous.

All the revenue that were generated in the past, what happened to the monies?


Nigerian govt and their anti-masses campaign has come again, in civilized world, at least the one I live you, you rebuild the roads, then install toll gates and not the other way around. This is extortion.

My friend, please STOP embarrassing yourself. Do you pay before or after meals? I think it's latter -- After.

Why should one pay for roads that don't exist to the standard YET?

Accessible roads is the most BASIC infrastructure the govt MUST provide to it's citizens at no cost. You do not toll major roads particularly where there isn't other options, at least in other parts of the world, at least here, majority of roads tolled are interstate roads or highways and the govt has to exercise caution when tolling such roads.

Is not the fault of helpless Nigerians that has not be afforded jobs and any form of social securities to be asked to part with all kinds of levies.It is total insensitivity on the part of government.This goes further to show the huge disconnect that exist between government and the governed.

exactly what abacha said immediately after the coup and what GEJ said during the manifestoes.
But these toll gates were demolished during obasanjos tenure placing #1 on each liter of petrol bought. Why then do they think of restoring the toll gate without the removal of the #1 on each liter of petrol? Looking for another source to rob the masses i guess!

My friend don't argue from the position of extreme ignorance, you are ready to pay for it where you live but in Naija you think it must be free, in Nigeria FERMA is incharge of ''interstate roads and highways'', were you told that streets will be tolled? You are just contradicting yourself. Your problem is metooism,others criticize you feel you must not be left out.

LOL... Yes o, I know it's metooism, more grease to my elbows. grin grin grin grin

Nonetheless, you have no clue what you're talking about and NO I don't pay for tolls except if I'm traveling to another state...i.e., if I travel by connecting highways which isn't really the case here. I still maintain, roads shouldn't be tolled, if at all, it's interstate highways. Now run along and go find def of interstate highways...

BTW, I'm not against paying tolls, what I'm against is paying for tolls before the roads are being maintained. When I pay tolls from DC to NY, they are CLEAN, NO POT HOLES, NO DEATH TRAP 3,5 6 LANE HIGHWAYS.

Me sef, I'm tired of explaining the same thing over and over again. You're right, unfortunately, we're in different parts of the world. Where I am, we have different classification of highways/expressways hence my continuous stance. Forgive my "metoooism", I won't argue again... grin grin grin grin

Before toll gates were demolished by Obasanjo, they were between states (Federal highways/interstate) not within the metropolis. The bolded, that's what you think, but you are far from the reality bro.

Oh ok , no problem at all... Believe me, anything you say goes. If you're fine with it, I'm cool. We're all here to learn from each other, if that's the case, then fine.
