Gov. Ambode Stops Collection Of Toll At Second Toll Point In Lekki

Governor Akinwunmi Ambode, has assured residents that tolls will no longer be collected at the second toll point on the Lekki- Epe Expressway.

Ambode made this known in a statement read by his Chief Press Secretary at an interactive session with journalists at the Banquet Hall of the Lagos House, Ikeja.

He said:

“We must start thinking of the future concerning that road. We said we will have an International Airport in Epe, and an Export Processing Zone in Lekki and a Deep Seaport also in Lekki.

“Should we not start thinking about how we will improve and create a 10-lane road between Ikorodu, Itoikin, Epe and Ijebu Ode so that people can go out from there? There is no point constructing the road, paying tolls and in five years’ time, the road is gone.”

“As more means of transportation come on board, the more than 600,000 private car owners and
120,000 motorcycles that are being put on the road in the state on a daily basis will reduce in number.”

“We have said this is a government of continuity, but it is continuity with improvement. It is about making life easier for the people. We are receptive to new ideas and that is why we are going to be creative, innovative and thinking out of the box.”
