Ogun state governor, Ibikunle Amosun, has disclosed that the state was losing between N3 billion and N5 billion as revenue monthly from haphazard toll collection.
The governor made the revelation at the inauguration of harmonisation of haulage revenue collection in the state, in Abeokuta.
The event, with the theme: ‘Harmonisation Eradicating Multiplicity in Haulage Revenue Collection’, was attended by top officials of security agencies, stakeholders in transport and haulage sector.
Amosun further lamented the huge loss of revenue by the state due to unorganised toll revenue collection, saying the new scheme would address the identified inadequacies of the former method.
He added that the harmonisation would also block revenue leakages and eradicate printing and issuing of fake toll tickets by some contractors.
