FG Returns Toll Gates On Federal Roads by stanech: 4:14pm On Oct 02
THE Federal Government on Wednesday said that plans were at the advanced stage to return toll gate on the federal highways.

The Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola disclosed this while briefing State House Correspondents after the Federal Executive Council, FEC, meeting presided over by President Muhammadu Buhari at the Council Chamber, Presidential Villa Abuja.

Fashola, flanked by the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed said there was no law that stopped the government from having toll gate on federal roads.

He said, “There is no reason why we can’t toll, there was a policy of government to abolish tolls or as it where, dismantle toll plaza but there is no law that prohibit 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 government was also considering to eliminate 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.

[b]Tax tax tax

The answer is not to increase taxes.
No country can succeed if they have more poor than middle class folks.
The answer is so everything to move more Nigerians from poor to middle class.

In no particular order, i recommend the following steps if we must migrate from poor to developing country:

The first step is to reduce government spending and refocus it on the people. House of rep, senate ati gbogbo ti gob should be be put on 200% of the minimum wage.

Second step is to stop subsidizing petrol and mandate local refining of oil and gas. The money wasted by subsidizing Petrol can saved and will create new opportunities

Third step is to be export more than we import. E.g coal and agricultural products and remove all the hurdles that makes exporting and importing a Herculean task.

Fourth step is to increase trading with other African. Countries. This would bring more wealth into the country.

Finally, fix core infrastructures especially electricity because without electricity, the cost of doing business in Naija is extreme high.
Fix roads so farmers can easily transport their goods.
Build commercial rails so tankers and heavy lifters don’t have to be on the road unnecessarily.

There are so many things we can do to help us grow and taxing Nigerians to death is not one of them.

The elites will not mind the taxes but the poor and average Nigerians will bear the brunt because that increased vat, toll, bank taxes etc greatly hurts them and their business. [/b]
