The managing director of LCC Yomi Omomuwasan In a statement on Friday announced the postponement adding that a new resumption date would be announced. The postponement followed several protests by Lekki residents under the aegis of the Lekki Estates Residents & Stakeholders Association who rejected the resumption of tolling at the bridge which was scheduled to begin on April 16th, 2022.

The statement was titled, ‘LCC Shift Resumption Date Of Toll Collection At The Ikoyi Link Bridge Toll Plaza. New Date To Be Announced Soon.
“As a responsible organization, we must take full cognizance of everyone within the axis. Therefore, we want to continue with the ongoing engagements with our stakeholders.
“The preparatory operations to resume tolling on the Bridge have been smooth so far, and we are grateful to all the key stakeholders for their cooperation. The planned commencement of toll collection has now been postponed, allowing more of our customers to register for the electronic toll devices to enable seamless passages at the toll plaza,” he said.
