The senate has passed a motion seeking to reintroduce the collection of tolls on Federal Highways across the country.
 
It said collection of toll, from motorists was the only way to construct and maintain roads and enhance their efficiency.
 
The tolls were abolished by former president Olusegun Obasanjo 12 years ago, who argued that the revenue for road maintenance should rather be generated from an increased pump price of petrol.

Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Mr. Babatunde Fashola had said at various fora why the country should genarate income from tolls.
