BREAKING: Amid Hardship, Tinubu Directs Federal Airports to Start Collecting Tolls From Nigerians At Gates

The Nigerian government under the leadership of Bola Tinubu, has declared that individuals utilizing federal airports nationwide will now be required to pay toll fees at airport entrances.

This decision was among the resolutions passed by the Federal Executive Council (FEC) during its recent sessions in Abuja spanning Monday and Tuesday.

Bayo Onanuga, the Special Adviser on Information and Strategy to President Tinubu, revealed this directive alongside other FEC approvals.

He noted that neither Tinuut nor Shettima would be exempt from the toll charges at federal airport gates.

“After exhaustive deliberations, the council approved a number of policies and projects that will further boost the economy, facilitate investments and promote the ease of doing business in the country.

 “FEC approved that all users of Federal airports all over the country must now pay tolls at the gates. No one is excluded. The President and Vice President of Nigeria will also pay the toll,” Onanuga said.

He mentioned that the FEC also gave the green light for supplying, installing, and training operators for a disabled aircraft recovery system at Murtala Muhammed Airport in Lagos.

According to him, “The contract will cost N4.2 billion. Similar contract was awarded in 2021 for Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport in 2021.”
