 The Lagos State Government has ordered the suspension of the proposed tariff hike on Lekki-Epe Expressway and Lekki-Ikoyi link bridge by the Lekki Concession Company (LCC).

“The Lagos State government hereby informs the general public that the said tariff hike has now been put on hold as the necessary consultations with stakeholders are yet to be concluded,” the State Commissioner for Information & Strategy, Mr. Steve Ayorinde, said in a statement issued on Friday.

“While government recognises the need for periodic review of tariffs and any other levies appertaining to road infrastructure maintenance in the state, the public and critical stakeholders as the ultimate beneficiaries of such facilities must always be carried along at all times.

“Therefore, the proposed tarrif hike cannot be effected at this period in the interest of the public, while further consultations continue,” Ayorinde said.
