The Minister said there was no law that stopped the government from having toll gate on federal roads.


His words: “There is no reason why we can’t toll, there was a policy of the government to abolish tolls or as it were, dismantle toll plaza but there is no law that prohibits tolling in Nigeria today. We expect to return toll plazas, We have concluded their designs of what they will look like, what materials they will be rebuilt with, what new considerations must go into them.

Fashola stressed that the Buhari-led government needed to acquire more lands to expand the width of the toll gates as it proposed to have a ten-lane.
