It was declared openly on Monday February 15 2021, by the managing director of LCC, Yomi Omomuwasan, that tolling was not the initial element on the company’s card since reclaiming ownership.

“It does not mean that when we take possession, once we rebuild or once we take possession or finish the evaluation and the next thing is to start tolling. No. It takes a process. People are engaging us to say, ‘How do we offer a better service, how do we improve our services and we are ready to listen to that kind of good feedback. So, we need to work on a lot if things internally before you see us starting to toll.”
