Even with the proceeds realized at the end of the day won't still guaranteed good road, gallop free road etc watch and see!

I remember when they first removed fuel subsidy the then President and Economy and Finance Minister GEJ/NOI said the will use the money realize for infrastructure, social amenities/good roads.

That’s not a very good example because first of all subsidy has never been fully removed in any government. Secondly in most cases where we increased petrol price to reduce subsidy, increase use of petrol and higher cost of petrol through devalued naira meant the subsidy always came back even bigger.

Toir head is correct. You see how they strategically chose the major roads that Easterners mostly ply to reach the East to be rolled but left out the major roads in the core North. The war is on different faces and patterns but we the southern people and indigenous people will surely be victorious.

Dude calm down and do not bring ethnic coloration to this. There are many roads in the SE and SS that are not here. East west road is not on the list. Neither is Enugu - Onitsha or Portharcourt - Owerri , or Warri - Benin or Asaba- enugu

I saw Lagos- Abeokuta express way on the list. So they Plan to toll the small lane left after they have occupied the express with brt lane. Anyway they should at least think how the toll plaza won't cause traffic on the road users like that of lekki. Abeg

What exactly the Govt will be responsible for in this country?

We are providing common water for ourselves.
We provide house � and places to stay for ourselves.
We pay heavily to access education at all levels.
We are getting food not at subsidising rate óò but through our nose �.
We have been paying to get job since.
Electricity nko, they are saying we have to pay more for darkness.
Now road is going be concessioned.
Very soon tax will be paid to get wife or husband.
Lastly when one need to enter there another tax for sure.

Wait for government to find wife for you and help you pay bride price.

In UK you pay for water supplied to you - not free.

In UK, you pay for your food. Notbfree and not subsidised

In UK you pay for your electricity from private companies. Not run by government or subsidised.

In UK there are also some roads with tolls.

In UK VAT is 20%

In UK 63% of petrol price is tax element.

The only area you listed where I agree UK government subsidises is education. But then that's where your taxes go to.


Other things you didn't mention.

In UK there is radio and TV licence.

In UK there is council tax

In UK income above £50k per year is taxed at 40%

Airports are run privately and not by government

Most Train services are private and not government owned.

So what then is UK government doing with all its resources??

Kudos to one Nigeria.

The north has far more roads and landmass but tollgates are only good for the South. Where is jos- zaria road, abuja-kaduna, kaduna-kano

Are you for real?

When last did you see potholes on UK highways?

Those roads that are like roads in video games, where you can cruise with your ride and it will almost be like you’re flying.

Let’s not even talk about their military might, fighter jets they produce...

The tax burden in the Uk is obviously much, but you can’t ask what they are doing with it, juxtaposing that with Nigeria in order to absolve leaders here from graft.

LCC is now owned by government since LASG took them over a few years ago, so of course you don’t expect government to care about streetlights and markings. Both of those were actually more present when it was not owned by LASG.

This makes sense, cause at a point, street lights were maintained and lanes were repainted.

There are tolls on UK highways. Those tolls are what keep the roads smooth like that.

Why don't you want Nigeria to do the same?

The problem with Nigeria relating to bad roads isn't about lack of fund or neglect but deep corruption.... deep corruption

What it take to construct 100km in other country can not construct 10km local road here. Maintenance fund is also for weekend suya.

Even banditry, Herdsmen and BH are product of corruption. Hope OGA Corruption will not kill us one day.
