Lekki Concession Company, LCC, Managing Director, Yomi Omomuwasan, says he cannot tell how much is made at the Lekki toll gate.
Speaking with newsmen, Yomi said the repair on the Lekki toll gate would take four months or more to finish. The damages he alleged were caused by the aftermath of the #EndSARS protest last year October.
The LCC MD, while speaking, said the major victim of the protest was the company because of the destruction of its facilities and equipment at the Lekki toll gate.
Omomuwasan said, “We’ve always said that we are not part of the problem, we are not part of the #EndSARS issue, we are just a company, operating and working on its own, and all of a sudden, you find out one day that you have been forced out of your location. And if the place has been cleared, for us, it means we can go back to our normal life.”
The MD, when asked how much they make per month before the #EndSARS protest in October, he said, “We don’t have a figure to that. We don’t know.”
On the company’s comeback plan, he said, “First, we will estimate and evaluate the asset that is burnt down, once we put the figure to it, we will approach the insurance company to a claim. We will then go on to do e-tolling procurements, conduct civil works, engage in the restoration of the cablings. That will take the next four months for us to get to that point. It takes an average of six months to one year to build a tolling system anywhere in the world.”
