The Federal Government is planning to reintroduce toll gates, 15 years after the President Olusegun Obasanjo administration removed them across the country.
Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola disclosed this on Wednesday while briefing state house correspondents after the end of the Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting.

The minister also disclosed that the council had approved additional N15.765 billion for two roads in the country which are Suleja-Minna-Lambata road and Ibadan-Lagere-Ilesa bypass.
He said the two roads contracts approved on Wednesday were upward review from initially approved rates.
