In a statement signed by the Managing Director of LCC, Yomi Omomuwasan, the company decided to delay the resumption of toll collection for further consultations with key stakeholders in the Eti-Osa, Lekki area, in a bid to address their concerns and arrive at a mutually favourable resolution of all issues. 

According to him, the shift became necessary to give customers more time to register for the electronic devices.

The statement read in part: “As a responsible organization, we must take full cognizance of everyone within the axis. 

“Therefore, we want to continue with the ongoing engagements with our stakeholders.

“The preparatory operations to resume tolling on the Bridge have been smooth so far, and we are grateful to all the key stakeholders for their cooperation. 

“The planned commencement of toll collection has now been postponed, allowing more of our customers to register for the electronic toll devices to enable seamless passages at the toll plaza.”

“Talks with key stakeholders will continue, while a new date for toll collection will be announced soon,” Mr. Omomuwasan said.
