The Nigerian Senate has passed a motion calling for the reintroduction of toll gates on federal roads across the country.

The motion, titled ‘Need for the Re-establishment of Toll Gates On Our Federal Highways,’ was moved Senator Suleiman Nazif, representing Bauchi-North Senatorial District, during Tuesday’s plenary.

The senator said the call for the reintroduction of toll gates is hinged on the need to generate revenue to maintain existing highways and build new roads.

Nazif, thereafter, called on the upper chamber to “constitute an ad-hoc committee to carefully study the toll-gate policy toget‎her with other relevant stakeholders on effective and efficient ways to carry out the policy aimed at producing a holistic package to generate adequate funds for road construction and maintenance, and the money realised should be judiciously utilised in order to restore confidence in the masses”.

After much deliberation on the motion, Ike Ekweremadu, deputy senate president, who presided over the session, called for a voice vote, and the senate voted positively for it.
