Lagos - The governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Lagos State, Jimi Agbaje, has promised to cancel the controversial Lekki-Epe toll gate, if elected into office on February 28, reports Vanguard.

Agbaje, who was speaking during an interactive session with the Muslim community in Lagos on Wednesday noted that toll gate is untenable as it is standing on an existing road.

He, however, promised to retain the toll on Lekki Phase 1 inner bridge because the concessionaire company started the road from scratch.
