Lagos State Governor, Mr. Babajide Olusola Sanwo-Olu has commended motorists in Lagos for their role in ensuring the successful implementation of the cashless initiative at Lekki/Ikoyi toll plaza.

Sanwo-Olu said the impact of the initiative to remove bottlenecks was already being felt, thanking motorists for their cooperation with the government and seeking more compliance.

Speaking through his Commissioner for Transportation, Dr. Frederic Oladeinde, on the implementation, the Governor stated that the cashless policy which commenced on 2nd January 2020, became necessary in order to address constant traffic gridlocks often experienced at that corridor due to the slow process of cash payments at the toll plaza.

He encouraged those who have not yet obtained their e-tags to comply as enforcement will commence after expiry of the two-week extension granted motorists to abide by the new requirements.

The Governor warned that anyone who turns up with cash at the Lekki-Ikoyi toll gate would pay a stiff penalty of N1,000 and not be granted access until completion of the compliance process.

He also cautioned against corrupt practices such as photocopying of payment vouchers for multiple usage or presentation of fake e-payment devices, saying that the State Government would not hesitate to apply the law on any motorist that attempts to frustrate its efforts at improving traffic situation along the Lekki-Ikoyi Bridge corridor.
