According to a petition at CitizenGo, as at 17:12 on the 3rd of November, 2,931 people are against the recent increase of toll gate fares announced by the Lekki Concession Company Ltd. The petition which was created by Ngozi Ihedigbo is to stop the government from implementing the increase come 8th of November 2017, as they’ve published.
Here’s a copy of the petition:
Petition to: The governor of Lagos State – Nigeria
We say “No to any increase to toll fares”
Nigeria is a country in recession, people have no jobs and the ones with jobs can hardly survive on their salaries. Yet all the government is doing is impose hardship on innocent people for their selfish gain. There is no reason why there should be an increase on the Lekki-Victoria Island toll and we need this action to be stopped.
We can no longer sit and fold our arms and say ‘its business as usual’. We pay taxes, even though we do not see any major improvements to quantify these payments. We are our own government as we provide our own water, light and in most cases our roads. Yet all the government does is take, take and take from us.
The Lekki-VI toll fare should actually be going down, rather there is a 70% increase in toll fee starting November 8th 2017. Did anyone get a 70% raise in salary? Did Nigeria inflation go up by 70%? Yet LCC does not deem it fit to negotiate with its stakeholders rather they impose these increment on us with absolutely no explanations.
We have to do something about this.
Say “NO to any toll fare increase in Lagos State”
