Lekki Estate Residents List Conditions For Tollgate Reopening

Residents of the estates around Lekki, under the aegis of Lekki Estates Residents and Stakeholders Association, have given the Lagos State Government and Lekki Concession Company, managers of the Lekki/Epe Expressway, conditions for the reopening of the Lekki toll gate.

The association is asking the state government and managers of the road to provide viable alternative roads to the tolled roads, implement round figure fees at the toll and immediately improve the tolling system technology to guarantee free flow at the toll gates before the commencement of tolling.

The statement was signed by Mr Olorogun  Emadoye and Mr Gbemi Adelekan, President and Secretary-General of the association respectively.

The association noted that its members have been victims of insecurity and disruption of movement since the #EndSARS protests in October, which led to the destruction and eventual closure of the toll gate and Saturday’s protest against the order for its reopening.

While appealing for restraint among angry youth, the association called on the government to allow free expression of discontent in a way that guarantees protection of lives and properties.
