The Federal Government sorry Fulani Government in Nigeria has no real function apart from stealing. A country blessed with oil yet the oil wealth ended up in the pocket of mostly Northern Oil Wells 'owners'.

Now the Federal Roads are bad, and there is no money to fix them, except by taxing those who drive on the road. The Universities are totally dysfunctional and even Electricity is provided by citizens for themselves even with high tarrif.

I have just one question: Why do we need a Federal Government since they are a dysfunction to the progress of a cyber crypto-future when they know nothing about 1s and 0s of sovereign management?

Hope the tax collectors (Army and Police) would now be told not to fizzle out money from people after paying tollgates

Mumu country

That is what will happen. Frsc, police , custom , vio, soldiers will be stationed close to the toll gate to extort motorists.

First inter state travel fair will add money. Which means GrandMa will have to pay more to go see her grand kids.

If it will be control by the state Governments then it's fine cos federal will swallow the WHOLE money there.

More jobs .

More holdup too...

It's killing

Are they going to put the toll in roads there like sandfil in lagos because bandits will surely be going there to collect their own

When a country lacks vision, maintenance culture & continuity, this is what happens. Years ago we've got Toll gates across Nigeria then came another government that destroyed them all.

Now another is here to rebuild toll gates again at the expense of the masses; we would start hearing billions of Naira now for building all the projects.

Who did we offend in Nigeria?

They don’t think of anything that will benefit the masses, they Only do things that will benefit them from the masses. With all the billions loaned, nothing to show for it. Now you wanna start taking from us while you giving us nothing.
With those money loaned in, can give the whole Nigeria stable electricity and you know what that will do to the economy at large

I tot they said Kano is bigger than d entire south east.

Isn't Kano supposed to have about 5 tolling gates?

When it comes to taxing, SE will be on d radar.

If this is about sharing revenue now, Kano will take d largest share

Useless country governed by mad animal

Those countries actually know where there tax money is going. But what do we have to show here? Absolutely nothing. If electricity is constant, we would gladly pay required amount. We would pay for anything so far we are seeing that they are worthwhile. We recharge our phones, but data bundles, subscribes to cable TVs at will cos we know too well we will get the adequate services they promised.

Any means of revenue here is to the benefit of the office holders not the citizens. Seh u get?

Why can't they toll only new routes?

I am not in support of repair/extension of a road on an already existing route and then erecting tolls. This just adds to the suffering of people in my opinion, adds more traffic on those routes, not to talk of the cost of paying a toll for each and every pass, unlike a more forgiving scheme, where toll passes could be paid for ahead of time for a certain duration, thereby cutting the cost of paying per pass.

I do however strongly support tolls on new routes such as the Lekki-Ikoyi Link bridge. Obviously, some may argue that this bridge could still be toll free and built with tax payers money, but as a society, having tolls such as these that solve problems and cut travel times should be encouraged. These would also help to pay for more infrastructure, given there in sincere leadership, which is hard to come by all over Nigeria.

The toll gate at Lekki-Epe, to me, is an example of corruption in Nigeria. If you are currently driving on that road tonight, please report to the house whether or not you have street lights and adequate lane markings on that road, or are you just driving in the dark?

You will never see those lou=sy selfish hypocrites who always scream children of hate upandan here.

Those horrible humans especially from SW would have told you that SE does deserve addition state like them as their land is as small as Adamawa state...

Now SE will be taxed like them that have six states and the wicked mannequins are no where to be found.

The country is just full of evil and injustice.

Why no Minna- Suleja- Abuja?

Ibadan-Ogbomsho-Ilorin?
