Lagos state governor, Akinwunmi Ambode has declared the second Lekki-Epe expressway toll free.
PUNCH reports that the Governor while speaking at an interactive session with journalists at the Banquet Hall of the Lagos House, Ikeja, assured residents that tolls will not be collected at the second toll point on the Lekki- Epe Expressway.
He said, ”We must start thinking of the future concerning that road. We said we will have an International Airport in Epe, and an Export Processing Zone in Lekki and a Deep Seaport also in Lekki.
”Should we not start thinking about how we will improve and create a 10-lane road between Ikorodu, Itoikin, Epe and Ijebu Ode so that people can go out from there? There is no point constructing the road, paying tolls and in five years’ time, the road is gone”.
