You are the richer half of the country so you can easily afford to pay.

What does that even mean? If you wanna tax the motorists, do it nationwide. Abi would you like only us to use our Niger delta oil alone.

Good one. Buhari seems to be doing well in some instances. I am only sorry for those Nigerians that love and stand by Nigeria, come what may, but not for those that keep calling Nigeria shithole. For such people, America and the West are presumably Cake-holes. Well, shit is free if you’re not constipated and Cakes expensive. For Nigeria to become cakehole, Nigerians have to put up with taxes. In Cakehole Nations, people are taxed within and inch of their lives and in fact the very air you breathe is taxed in the form of congestion Tax. Since Nigeria does not appear to have sophisticated architecture to collect tax, leading to majority of Nigerians living tax free, Nigeria has to collect taxes in these basic ways, which are nevertheless effective. Nigeria government should improve roads, Toll them, utilising some of the money raised for maintenance and increasing Police salaries.

No problem as long as they remove the money Obasanjo added to petrol after he removed the toll gates.

This is all fashola is known for. Taxing and tolling people without any development to show for it. Give him a chance, only the rich deserve to live. It is the way his mind thinks. An aristocrat who thinks the poor don't deserve to live. I had always pity those who think he will make a good president. He lacks empathy...

Press Statement

PDP Rejects Moves By Buhari To Return Toll Gates

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) vehemently rejects plans by President Muhammadu Buhari to return toll gates on highways in the country.

The party laments that such insensitive idea, in the midst of excruciating economic hardship and high costs of living occasioned by the incompetence and harsh policies of the Buhari administration, is completely ill-conceived and anti-people.

The PDP insists that at best, such idea amounts to executive bullying which cannot be justified under any guise as it will lead to more increase in costs of goods and services across the country.

Only recently, President Buhari approved the increase of Value Added Tax (VAT) from 5% to 7.2% despite outcry by Nigerians, who are also being made to pay exorbitant tariffs for electricity and other essential services.

Since President Buhari came into office in 2015, his administration had continued to increase prices and impose all manner of levies on Nigerians which proceeds are being frittered by the cabal in the presidency leading to a bleeding economy and despondency among the citizenry.

The PDP says that instead of putting more pressure on already impoverished Nigerians by introducing toll gates at this point in time, President Buhari should exert himself, seek ways of creating wealth out of the abundant resources at the disposal of his administration or make haste to surrender the reign of governance to more competent hands.

Nigerians could recall that the PDP administration, in keeping with our determination to ensure the wellbeing and economic prosperity of our citizens, dismantled toll gates, cut tax profiles and applied our energies towards wealth creation.

It is therefore certain that if our nation were under a PDP administration, as desired by Nigerians, competent hands would have been on the deck to proffer ways to create wealth for governance instead of turning our citizens into vassals who are overburdened by heavy taxes.

The PDP states that it is lamentable that at the time Nigerians ought to be enjoying the benefits of the Atiku Abubakar economic recovery and wealth creation blueprint, they are faced with suppressive policies.

The PDP therefore charges President Buhari to immediately rescind the decision to return toll gates on our highways as such is not in the best interest of Nigerians.

I would even say they should start first by making the federal roads motorable, similar to what they see abroad. Before anything about tollgate fees.
