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

What is nairaland coming too, that mods will allow such disgusting posts to remain on the front page?

May God punish this bastarrd for trying to turn rape into a positive

Disgusting bastarrrd!

As for nairaland, if you're not careful, your site will be hacked or spammed to the upteenth degree and I want to know if mods will be happy to see posts on the front page all hidden

fix your gaddam site

It also removed the unnecessary holdups at toll areas.
Naturally everyone hates tollgates except the people that get money from it. The traffic disappeared and that was a good thing

Where you born at the time we had tollgates on Federal roads? You would delete this comment you wrote because the roads were bad. Ask your elders.

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.


Den don show you the list of the roads to be tolled?

Sounds like you are the bigot.

I think I have a seer gift......I told someone that petrol will sell for N200 before March and that if this government can't think of where to get money they will introduce tollgate again
And when you ask them how much the toll gate generates,they will say they don't know,dont have the records,all Na scam, the people you voted for don't love you.
All they think is what can we do again to make these people uncomfortable instead of making live better for the people,they make it more miserable, the nonentities in government don't know why government exist.

So how do d govts in developed countries u are referring to use d taxes they collect? How does d govt in Nigeria use d taxes it collects? Any difference?



It is your responsibility as citizens to be the watchdog of government by demanding information like SERAP and BudgetIT are doing. You need to demand accountability. You should not obstruct development. That’s what they do in developed countries.

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.



You must demand accountability, not obstruct development. That’s what they do in developed countries.

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.




I am not a traitor. But I am sensible. You must demand accountability from government, not obstruct progress and development. The citizens abroad demand accountability. They don’t obstruct development. If government is concessioning, you must demand transparency and watch how this is done to ensure accountability.

Jerryherd:
I wonder why Obasanjo removed toll gates in the first place

At that time the tollgate process didn't have the technology to work in Nigeria's climate, cash transfer between the motorist and tollgate always ended up in someone's personnel pocket, hence it was the right decision to remove the tollgate at that time.

With the advent of electronic payment systems across the country, cash transfer is now electronic, reducing the human factor.

We need private companies to also contribute towards building good roads network in Nigeria

If only you can be patient to think thru the policies of your country Nigeria, starting with the genesis of fuel increments etc..
Unless you are probably too young to reason along that line

Extortion in the highest level. Cost of transport fare on affected route will automatically shoot up. This is crazy. What then do they do with other taxes generated from the citizenry. Increase VAT, fuel price, bank transaction fee etc, still not enough for them. This is just too mean of this government against the people

What about traffic it will cause, they need to use faster automated systems, humans are slow on this type of task. The roads too need to be very wide.

They use taxes to provide health, security, educational and social services in developed countries. But the taxes are not enough most times. They bring in private entrepreneurs to invest in public utilities like building roads and health services etc. They recoup their money by managing the services and collecting tolls and bills. But the people and government ensure there is accountability in everything they do. The citizens willingly pay the taxes. If they feel the taxes are too much, they will either vote out the politicians or go to court to challenge these taxes etc.

I believe my questions were very straightforward. D first question:

1. how do d govts in developed countries u are referring to use d taxes they collect?

I didn't ask u whether d taxes are enough or not. I didn't ask u if they recoup d money or how they recoup d money. I didn't ask u about accountability. I didn't ask u about d attitude of westerners towards taxation and I didn't ask u if they go to court or not. I simply asked:

how do d govts in developed countries u are referring to use d taxes they collect?

My second question went thus:

"How does d govt in Nigeria use d taxes it collects? Any difference?"

This is a welcome development. Now we need another policy like this for Railways.

Fashola the corrupt thief is at it again. Totally clueless and corrupt.
The only thing he knows is to increase prices and extort money from the masses. Same thing he did as Lagos Governor, then Minister of Power and now as Minister of Works and Roads.
Obasanjo cancelled tolls on the roads because he increased fuel price. This Buhari govt. has increased fuel price multiple times, and so why the toll fees again?
They increase prices with nothing to show for it!!
Useless govt.
