President, Vice To Pay Tollgate Fees At Airports

He emphasised the need to rectify this disparity and ensure that all airport users contribute fairly to tollgate fees.

By Musa Ibrahim

President Bola Tinubu and Vice President Kashim Shettima will now be subject to paying tollgate fees when using airports in Nigeria, as the Federal Executive Council has ceased granting exemptions for airport users.

This decision, approved by the FEC, comes after Minister of Aviation Festus Keyamo presented a memorandum highlighting the substantial revenue loss due to the lack of tollgate fee collection. Initially, the memorandum proposed exemptions solely for the president and vice president, but Tinubu intervened, mandating that both leaders pay the tollgate fees.

Keyamo expressed disappointment that affluent individuals, especially VIPs, have evaded payment while only ordinary citizens have been charged. He emphasised the need to rectify this disparity and ensure that all airport users contribute fairly to tollgate fees.
