[dropcap]N[/dropcap]otwithstanding notice of 100 percent rise in toll tickets on automobiles plying the airport by the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria, FAAN, motorists in Lagos State, were said to have paid the old toll rate on Thursday.

Mr. Richard Akinola, Veteran journalist and Human Rights Activist,who confirmed that the toll gate attendants collected the old toll instead of the amount, notified all motorists recently.

According to him, he decided to drive through the Lagos airport toll gate on the said day to find out about the execution of the notice of increase in toll charges by FAAN and was surprised that the attendants at the toll post were still sticking to the old fees and when confronted they insisted that Lagos motorist were not affected by the increase.

“The attendants at the toll gate said the 100 percent increase does not affect the Lagos toll gate but the Abuja airport access gate. I paid the old toll of N300 for SUVs.” He said,

He also reported that another motorist, Mrs Angela Agoawike, mentioned that the attendants at the toll gate informed her that the new tariff was not yet effective as she also paid the sum of N300.

Confirmation as at the time of this report however revealed that FAAN had not given exact date for the commencement of the new fees nationwide.
