Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour, LP Guber Candidate to Pull Down Toll Gates in the Lekki Ajah Axis
Lagos Governorship candidate of the Labour Party(LP), Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour says he will take away the burden of taxation from residents by pulling down all toll gates in the Lekki Ajah axis and Ikoyi link bridge.
Rhodes-Vivour disclosed this during an interactive session with newsmen in Lagos. According to him, the destruction of the toll gates will be replaced by the building of a monumental structure in memory of sons and daughters who were slain at the old Lekki Toll Gate.
He also pledged to improve the working conditions of workers in the state by increasing the minimum wage to N60,000 within his first 100 days in office. Gbadebo said his target was to ensure that the state’s minimum wage got to N100,000 as soon as possible.
The statement which comes ahead of the state’s gubernatorial election was accompanied by a plea. The Lagos guber candidate pleaded with Lagosians to come out in large numbers and cast their ballot for him. He also took the time to highlight his vision for a new Lagos.

Gbadebo hinted that he would cancel Alpha Beta’s Contract which costs the state N5 billion monthly. He explained that he would use the savings from the cancellation to set up a grand Loan Scheme for Micro, Small and Medium Scale Enterprises. The LP candidate said, “he expects the scheme to benefit up to one million beneficiaries in four years.”
Speaking on the repositioning of teaching as a middle-class career, Rhodes Vivour noted that his administration will advertise for the employment of 10,000 teachers with outstanding grades (First Class and Second Upper or Upper Credit).
Furthermore, he promised to take Agberos off the streets by executing a Memorandum of Understanding with all Road Transport Unions for the implementation of a rehabilitation and retraining program.
