Nigerian president, Vice, Others To Pay Mandatory Access Fees At Airports – FEC



Nigerian President and Vice President will henceforth be paying tollgate fees whenever they use airports in Nigeria.

The decision was taken at the Federal Executive Council, (FEC), approving that there should be no more exemption granted to users of the airports from paying tollgate fees.

,,””””!!!The approval was made following a memorandum presented to the council by the minister of aviation, Festus Keyamo, who argued that the government was losing over 82% of the revenue it should have earned from the e-tags that provide access to the tollgates.

Keyamo explained at the post-FEC media breifing that the memoranda had initially prescribed an exemption for only the president and the vice president before Tinubu overruled and directed that both of them should be included among those that must pay, regretting that wealthy Very Important Persons, VIPs, who should pay are those that have not been paying.

……..The minister added that only poor people had been charged for using the tollgates, a situation that must stop.
