Lekki Tollgates should be permanently dismantled – Bode George

A former vice-chairman of PDP SouthWest, Bode George, has called for the permanent dismantling of the two tollgates at the Lekki area of Lagos.

Bode George made the statement during a recent press conference following the ugly incident of Tuesday night, October 20, when men of the Nigerian military opened fire on unarmed protesters at the Lekki Toll Plaza.

According to Sir George, the dismantling of the tollgates would help in pacifying aggrieved Nigerian youths over the unfortunate events that emanated from the #ENDSARS protests.

The statement reads:

“Let me reiterate the irreducible minimum acceptable to placate the angry and restless youths in order to restore peace, fairness and equity in our state. The two tollgates should be dismantled immediately and permanently. AlphaBeta and Lekki Concession Company should be scrapped.

The advert signage monopoly given to Seyi Tinubu should be withdrawn forthwith. The Iya Oloja title should be withdrawn from Shade Tinubu and be given to the individual who deserves it according to tradition. The NURTW which has become the militia wing of the APC should be re-organized and removed from the armpit and control of political actors.”
