Toll Gates Move By APC To Inflict More Hardship On Nigerians – PDP

The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has described the planned return of toll gates on the nation’s highways as plot by the All Progressives Congress, APC-led government to impose more hardship on Nigerians.

In a statement signed its spokesman Kola Ologbondiyan, the PDP noted that “the move to return the toll gates to allow APC interests to further fleece already impoverished Nigerians, is offensive, vexatious, inflammatory and as such, should not be contemplated under any guise whatsoever.”

The statement added that the PDP-led government of Olusegun Obasanjo dismantled the toll gates 18 years to ease the burden on Nigerians who were being made to part with varying sums of money for plying the highways.

“The PDP therefore completely rejects the return of toll gates, as it will add more economic burden on the people, lead to hike in transport fares, increase in the prices of goods and services as well as provide safe haven for corrupt APC leaders to extort money from innocent Nigerians.” 

The statement further read, “APC’s decision to impose levies on the highway, even after it had increased the pump price of fuel to an extortionate N165 per litre, further confirms that APC is a heartless party that is out to fleece and impose hardship on the people to benefit its leaders.”
