Toll Fares

Recently, the Lekki Concession Company (LCC) announced that they will be increasing the toll fares on both Lekki-Epe Expressway and Lekki-Ikoyi Link Bridge taking effect from November 8.

Last night, Steve Ayorinde the Commissioner for Information and Strategy in Lagos State released an official statemt, on Lagos State’s official Facebook Page, addressing the proposed hike.

The statement reads:

The attention of Lagos State Government has been drawn to the announcement of a proposed tariff hike on Lekki-Epe Expressway and Lekki-Ikoyi link bridge by the Lekki Concession Company (LCC).
The Lagos State government hereby informs the general public that the said tariff hike has now been put on hold as the necessary consultations with stakeholders are yet to be concluded.

While government recognises the need for periodic review of tariffs and any other levies appertaining to road infrastructure maintenance in the state, the public and critical stakeholders as the ultimate beneficiaries of such facilities must always be carried along at all times.

Therefore, the proposed tarrif hike cannot be effected at this period in the interest of the public, while further consultations continue.

Signed:
Steve Ayorinde
Commissioner for Information & Strategy
Lagos State

    We need more of these celebrities to speak up like Caroline Hutchinson(I hope it’s correct) biko. I don’t evenue understand why we have them when they keep mum over issues that touches everyone in the country irrespective of social status.

    They will copy their American counterparts but will not copy them speaking out against vices!

    For example if artistes condemn irregularities in data tarrifs and pressure telecommunication companies to make data cheaper and available, most Nigerians will watch their videos on YouTube thereby getting more views. We have a large population everyone can benefit from.

    Pressure companies to advertise their goods and services at bus stops. I mean, get permission from appropriate authorities to build bus stops, paste what you sell there.

    What do I know sef? Am I not a student

    As a people, we have one voice. When we put it to use, good or bad, we obtain results. We spoke out against the proposed unjustified increments, this only means that our one voice was heard. #SpeakOut #OneNation #OneVoice

    Hah hanh, their scam has backfired . They want to commence on funding raising through increase in toll fees ahead of their upcoming reelection. Better cancel the whole damn stupid idea, because the stakeholders have spoken with a resounding NO.
