The federal government says it will grant licence for individuals to build, operate and maintain highways.

The arrangement is under the new highway development and management initiative (HDMI).

This development is coming after the federal ministry of works and housing received the Outline Business Case Certificate of Compliance to commence procurement process for the concession of 12 federal highways under the HDMI.

The certificate was issued by the Infrastructure Concession Regulatory Commission (ICRC).

In a document released by the ministry and signed by Boade Akinola, its director of press and publicity, the FMWH said the concession process will be classified into two categories — value-added concession and unbundled assets approvals.

For the value-added concession, the road pavement and entire right-of-way will be on concession for development and management by the concessionaire.

While for the unbundled assets approvals initiative, “approvals/permits are issued for individual assets on the right-of-way on a build, operate and or maintain basis”.

This will lead to the use of tollgates for concessionaires to recoup investments.

The ministry said the consessionaire agreement will provide adequate highway services through the development of revenue-generating assets along the highways. It added that over 200,000 jobs will also be created by the initiative.

‌”Both approaches aim to provide adequate highway services through the development of revenue-generating assets along the Highway. This is key to maintaining the functionality of the highway as well as engaging and generating wealth for indigenous small and medium enterprises,”
it said.

“The main objective of the initiative is to attract expertise and sustainable investment/funding in the development of road infrastructure and to maximise the use of assets along the Right of Way and develop other highway infrastructure.

“It’s not really about revenue, it’s about the expected injection into the economy. The estimated private sector investment required for the development and maintenance of the 12 routes is N1.34 trillion and the impact such investment will have on the economy cannot be overstated.

“A minimum 50,000 direct jobs and over 200,000 indirect jobs are envisaged to be created spanning construction works, installations, steel fabrication, security, hospitality, vehicle repairs, waste management and administrative work as the value chain along the highway economy is activated.”

Toll gates for the south alone

Fashola and co will be happy with this mental slavery. So individuals will be maintaining our roads? What are government responsibilities. We pay for road maintenance on every litre of fuel we buy. Nigeria is the real definition of slavery and mumu

shocked



Very nostalgic.
It brings back my memories of the early 90's
My favorite toll-gate of all time was the Okigwe Toll gate, I'd tell you why

I had just accompanied a friend from Enugu to Mbaise for his traditional wedding rites and on our way back the coaster bus we hired spoilt just after that toll-gate.
We managed to roll it off the road and tried sleeping in it because it was verrrry late.

Well, long story shut.
We were robbed by almost 8 men.
All the ladies in the bus were raped including the bride we just went to bring home.
Very sad incident that will forever warp my psyche because that was the begining of my fetish for bedding married women.

Taxation is part of any system and therefore this isn't a bad idea. I hope they take the tollgates to the north also unlike before. As for the licence for private roads and tollgates. It is long overdue. People already build wooded bridges in Lagos to link small communities and charge driver using the bridges.

Re: Tollgates To Return As FG Grants Individuals Licence To Build, Maintain Highways by Bigflamie(m): 12:40pm On Feb 23
Private companies building roads in the south and collecting toll fees thereby making transportation very expensive whereby the federal government builds the northern roads without toll gates.

Buhari is a bigot and terrorist.

So this system is still on the agenda despite all we have passed through and the promises here and there. I pray Nigerians wake up and fight for their rights. Buhari will just ruin this country the way things are going. What's now the benefits of democracy if we are being ruled by tyrants. May God almighty punish all of u.

This country is going to an end. That means Endsars protest does not add any value. Upon the protest and many dead soul they still want to open the toll gate without judgement. I rest my case.... Tinunbu we are waiting for you 2023 is near.

This is a lesson that things are easier said than done.

Who would have thought Nigeria would go back to the toll gate system so quickly.

Obasanjo would be so dissapointed right now.

Truth is, many free things are not sustainable especially with the economic crisis
