President Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Vice President, Kashim Shettima will start paying tollgate fees whenever they use airports in Nigeria.
This decision was reached on Tuesday, May 14, 2024 at the Federal Executive Council, (FEC) meeting with cabinet ministers in attendance.

The minister of aviation, Festus Keyamo, presented a memorandum to the council and argued that the government was losing over 82% of the revenue it should have earned from the e-tags that provide access to the tollgates.

Following the approval, there would be no more indemnity granted to high profile users of the airports from paying tollgate fees.

The minister explained during media briefing after the FEC meeting that the memoranda had initially prescribed an exemption for only the president and the vice president before Tinubu overruled and directed that both of them must pay.

Keyamo said it was regrettable that wealthy VIPs, who should pay are those that have not been paying, as he added that only poor people had been charged for using the tollgates, and that has come to an end with immediate effect.
