FG Begins Toll Collection From Nigerians, Announces Sale Of E-Tags

The Federal Airport Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has announced the commencement of compulsory toll payments for all users of federal airports at their respective toll gates across the country.

This implementation, which follows a directive from the President, began on Friday with the sale of E-Tags at Murtala Muhammed International Airport in Lagos and Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport in Abuja.

In a statement released on Thursday night, FAAN detailed the new system and its rollout locations. “Following the Presidential Directive that all citizens are mandated to pay for E-Tags at all 24 Federal Airports across the country, we wish to inform the general public that the E-Tags are available for sale starting Friday, May 20, 2024,” the statement read.

The E-Tags can be purchased at the following locations:

Lagos:

  • Location: Murtala Muhammed International Airport Lagos, Terminal 1, 5th Floor, Office of HOD Commercial
  • Contacts: 08033713796 or 08023546030

Abuja:

  • Location: Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, HOD Commercial Office (General Aviation Terminal)
  • Contacts: 08034633527 or 08137561615

FAAN emphasized that motorists without E-Tags can pay cash at the access gates but will be required to pay as they pass.

On Wednesday, the federal government officially announced that toll payments are now mandatory for all users of federal airports. Speaking to State House correspondents, the Minister of Aviation and Aerospace Development, Festus Keyamo, confirmed the directive, stating that the move aims to streamline access and enhance revenue generation nationwide at airport facilities.

The introduction of these tolls and the sale of E-Tags mark a significant shift in the management of airport access in Nigeria. This initiative reflects the government’s broader efforts to modernize infrastructure and improve operational efficiency at federal airports. It is expected to improve traffic flow and ensure a more organized system for airport users and administrators.
