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.


Imagine this clown comparing roads in the UK. Comparing taxes here with taxes in the UK, meanwhile people who pay their 45% tax aren’t tasked with generating their own power, providing their own security and have very affordable mass transit systems to move around.


What does #ENDSARS have to do with anything? And if you want to even talk about benefits of these partnerships, is it the Lekki toll gate you’ll cite?


Traitors abound in Nigeria.

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.

You wish. Go and ask those living in Lekki and how LCC have grossly been irresponsible.

Just drive down to Lekki Epe expressway and determine if that road is worth the money they generate everyday. Suffering and smiling generation.

Explains why everyone wants to be in the UK. They tax and spend the money on the people.

How does the government in Nigeria spend money generated from tax. They turn around to loot everything and then buy whatever is in sight to oppress you. You're doing yourself more harm by defending your oppressors.

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.
Her moans were something else...they were more of pleasure and that was the begining of my fetish for bedding married women.

That's a very bad encounter... But you don't expect her not to moan. I can imagine what was going through the groom minds?..

It's very obvious that Nigeria is regressing. This present government has done more harm than good.

He used it to trick us. It was at a time he want d to hike fuel price and in order to quell the uprisings that move would bring, he said the extra money we pay at the pump would be used to maintain the roads, hence no need for tollgates.

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

But d president enjoys free housing, free transportation, free newspaper, free internet, free telephone calls, free security, free electricity, free water, free healthcare, free food, free clothing...d list is endless. Mind u, d awoof is applicable both at home and abroad. How is this sustainable with d economic crisis?

Are u now saying that buhari will remove that money at d pump since we will be paying toll fees so as not to have a case of double taxation?

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

Like the tolled road between Onipanu and Mushin Lagos. This arrangement will NEVER work. The builder can decide to put toll fees at N1000.00 per thorough fare...

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.

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.

Please educate us.
