- “Tolling is universal for revenue generation and job creation. In developed countries, there is no place you go to that you don’t pay toll for the roads you use.
“If you are paying for water, electricity and communication, why can’t you pay for good roads? We will have more revenue to maintain the roads.
“Because when you toll, you get more revenue, you create more jobs and you have funds to maintain the roads.”
— Ezekiel Adeniji, Chairman of the Federal Road Maintenance Agency, speaking with Economy Confidential on Nigeria’s Federal Government’s plan to re-introduce toll-gates (scrapped by the previous administration) on Federal Roads.
