The Federal Executive Council (FEC) has approved the Federal Roads and Bridges Tolling Policy and Regulations aimed at reintroducing tollgates on Nigerian roads.
The Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, made this known to journalists after the weekly meeting on Wednesday in Abuja.
According to Mr Fashola, the policy and regulations were developed after extensive consultations with various stakeholders within and outside the government.
The minister, in 2019, announced that the government had concluded designs for the return of toll plazas on federal roads.
He said at the time that though the government dismantled toll plazas in the past, there was no law abolishing tolls.
