PDP faults reintroduction of toll gates
The Federal Government’s planned reintroduction of toll gates on the country’s major highways has been described by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as downright act of wickedness against the suffering masses.
In a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, the opposition party insisted that the move was a fresh plot to allow All Progressives Congress (APC) interests to fleece the already impoverished Nigerians.
The PDP noted that the administration of Chief Olusegun Obasanjo dismantled the toll gates 18 years ago to ease the burden on the people and end the corrupt regime of the operators.
“APC’s decision to impose levies on the highway, even after it had increased the pump price of fuel to an extortionate N165 per litre, further confirms that APC is a heartless party that is out to fleece and impose hardship on the people to benefit its leaders,” it added.
