Peregrino Brimah: The latest siphon - Nigeria adopting South Africa's ...

In the news, Nigeria is being schooled by South Africa as it plans to adopt South Africa’s highly controversial, 3-year stalled road use toll-tax. But as can be expected, unlike South Africa, Nigeria did not first revamp its roads before trying to tax the citizens for the “charity.”

Adekunle Oyinloye, Managing Director of The Infrastructure Bank (TIB), announced the proposed tax system in Abuja last Wednesday at the opening of the “Tolled Roads and Road Management: A Sustainable Approach” training which collaborates with South Africa’s Development Bank.

Unlike Nigeria, South Africa’s government first paid for massive upgrades to its road network, accruing more than $2 billion in debt before hosting the 2010 Johannesburg World cup. Despite upgrading the roads ahead of any plans to initiate a toll, the institution of the tolls has been blocked by heavy opposition and protests from South African worker unions and other groups to date.
