In its bid to ensure the regular maintenance of its road network across Nigeria, the Federal Ministry of Works and Housing plans to concession no fewer than 12 federal highways to private entities to manage.

The arrangement would enable the private companies to introduce toll gates on the 12 highways and collect revenue which they would use and regularly maintain such roads.

This information is contained in a document, which Vanguard obtained, yesterday, from the Federal Ministry of Works and Housing in Abuja.

The 12 highways to be concessioned under the Ministry’s “Highway Management Development Initiative”, HMDI, are: Benin-Asaba, Abuja-Lokoja, Kano-Katsina, Onitsha-Owerri, Shagamu-Benin and Abuja-Keffi-Akwanga.

Others are: Kano-Shuari, Potiskum-Damaturu, Lokoja-Benin, Enugu-Port Harcourt, Ilorin-Jebba, Lagos-Ota-Abeokuta and Lagos-Badagry-Seme Border.

Wahala dey ooo.... The Govt has run out of ideas to generate revenue. See them scrambling for anything that seems profitable even though it will affect the poor masses and at the same time, filling their pockets.
They are still scratching their heads for a way to fund the 2021 budget which they will in turn loot with reckless abandon. How did i end up in this country angry
Nah who get life get hope. May God epp Nigerians this 2021 and beyound.

Lagos-Badagry-Seme? They should put the toll gate at Iyana Iba. The road is very beautiful.


Meanwhile, I saw trailer loads of cattle and herdsmen heading towards Badagry today. Whatever the scenario is, Lagos is watching.
