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 will buy. Nigeria is the real definition of slavery and mumu
Wrong! Fuel the fg is still subsidising.

But that doesn't exempt all the indirect taxes imposed on the citizen by this administration.

Bank taxes self

It just shows how backward in thinking those who administer Nigeria are.

You would not need a toll gate to get revenues for highways if you wish to. The use of technology can help government get revenues from highway users without a toll gate in place.

THEN THE PEOPLE SHOULD BE ABLE TO SUE THE OPERATORS IF ANY BAD SECTION OF THE ROAD LEADS AN ACCIDENT. THE MUST BE A STANDARD THE ROADS MUST NOT FALL BELOW.

THEY SHOULD NOT JUST BE COLLECTING MONEY AND NOT BE ACCOUNTABLE FOR THE CONDITION OF THE ROADS.

THE TRANSACTIONS HAVE TO BE IN THE PUBLIC DOMAIN AS WELL.

I guess you were a kid when that of Ibadan, Ogere, 7UP were demolished and government of OBJ introduced road maintenance on each litre of fuel. It amounts to double taxations.

Re: Tollgates To Return As FG Grants Individuals Licence To Build, Maintain Highways by drlateef: 12:54pm On Feb 23
You are quite right. Some #EndSARS activists did not want toll collection, not the EndSARS brutality, that’s just a smokescreen. And some of them ask why collect tolls when they are paying tax. That’s what they do in most developed countries. They build roads and collect tolls. Some of the tolls are collected for ever. They don’t campaign against their government because they know that every good road is built with money. They even pay more tax than us. Apart from 50% PAYE tax in U.K., you also pay VAT on many goods and also road tax for your vehicle. Yet you pay toll charges on some of the roads.

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.
It is on social media you see people talking about what they don't know. Places where there were tall gate are still called tall gate despite there are no more. People sound as if there were never tall gates in the north.

if you don't have an idea on what it takes for a private individual to build roads is better you remain silent.

he removed them cos money wasn't remitted completely , some workers were printing their own tickets to give to drivers.

Roads that the FG is supposed to build with your taxes, they will now give their cronies licenses to build roads that will be tolled for 25 years. And you and your children will pay and pay.

Yet some people are here claiming this is great news.

If to say dem no dey misappropriate funds anyhow Shey money no go dey to build roads ni?

Well the private guys should know we'll hold them responsible for any mumu road plus they should keep account of what we are paying oo, infact put a big notice board showing the daily deductions let's know how much is left to pay and remove the toll cos I no trust this govt at all, big big roads ooo, don't come n do 2 lanes and start building toll gate, better make it 8 lane each gbayi or 10 to and fro sef, means of payment should be easy, plus #100 to and fro, infact #100 per day sef, well lit ooo.

Meaning the federal government is considering making the public PAY for road construction. No qualms.

So what happened to funds budgeted for roads since 1960 , external/internal and multilateral funding?

Mehn, Nigerian politicians have completely lost their soul.
