Lekki Tollgate: Lagos State government has said that of the about 25 million people in the state, only 4.2 million are ‘active taxpayers’, calling on citizens to be more responsible and upright.
The state Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Mr. Gbenga Omotosho, said this at a meeting the government held with stakeholders to explain the need to begin tolling of Lekki Tollgate.
At the meeting, stakeholders asked the Lagos State government to halt the April 1 planned reopening of the tolling of the Lekki-Ikoyi Link Bridge by the Lekki Concession Company Limited, LCC.
However, while calling on Lagosians, especially residents of Lekki and Ikoyi, to show understanding, Omotosho said the tolling was good for the economy.
