Protest As LCC, Lagos Plan To Hike Lekki Toll Fee

By Ajibola Abayomi,

December 7, 2017

Petition against the plan increase of Lekki-Ikoyi toll is gathering momentum.

The online petition monitored by the TheLead Online was initiated by one Ngozi Ihedigbo.

She said the Lekki Concession Company (LCC), earlier increase and the planned one was an “increment on us with absolutely no explanations.”

Over a thousand persons had signed the online petition while most of them view the planned increment as a way of foisting additional hardship on a suffering people.

Thousands of Lagos residents had taken a swipe at the LCC and Lagos State Government for the suspended increase of the toll fare which they alleged was a mark of insensitivity on the part of the company and Lagos government.

After its initial plan to increase the toll fare which generated controversies, the Lekki Concession Company has concluded plans with Lagos State Government to increase the fares at the Admiralty Circle Plaza and the Lekki -Ikoyi Link Bridge beginning from early 2018.

Sources close to the company disclosed that it has done some ‘strategic engagement’ with key stakeholders to seek their understanding and cooperation when the increased price will take effect.

At the Lekki-Ikoyi Link Bridge, saloon cars will pay N300, from N250; sports utility vehicles, mini vans, and light trucks N400, from N300. Motorcycles will pay N200.

“While the company expects strong reactions against the increase from residents and other users of the roads, it has gone to seek the understanding of community leaders, influential persons and politicians in the area including the press to show cooperation.

”Our company contracted consultants to do the strategic engagement ahead of the increment, which we know will elicit a lot of reactions.

The price is in line with the reality of the times as we presently do not make enough money to meet our obligations of staff salaries and infrastructural maintenance.

”Truly it is aimed at improving on the already being dispensed quality services that are visible to all” the source said.

Steve Ayorinde, Lagos Commissioner for Information, had in a statement, noted that the state government had directed the company to put the decision “on hold” as the necessary consultations with stakeholders are yet to be concluded.

“While government recognises the need for periodic review of tariffs and any other levies appertaining to road infrastructure maintenance in the state, the public and critical stakeholders as the ultimate beneficiaries of such facilities must always be carried along at all times,” he said.

“Therefore, the proposed tariff hike cannot be effected at this period in the interest of the public, while further consultations continue.”
