Jimi Agbaje has promised to take away the Lekki toll gates if he wins the 2019 governorship election in the state.
He said, “Good road is a fundamental right of citizens and we promise to deliver on this and many other things.
“At the moment, most Lagos roads are impassable because of their poor condition. Now, motorists are compelled to pay heavily for passage.
“How about the so-called alternative routes? Ideally, government should have provided alternative routes to the Lekki Toll Gate, but the available alternate route is in a terrible shape, so everybody is forced to use the toll gate and pay.”
His’s latest statement about the toll gates is in reaction to a toll-free passage recently paid for by his opponent in the All Progressives Congress (APC), Babajide Sanwo-Olu.
Agbaje described the campaign event as “absurd and regrettable” and labelled it a “farce”.
“Nobody was deceived by the party’s action which also smacks of disrespect and bondage,” he said.
