The Commissioner for Transportation, Dr Frederick Oladeinde, said that full implementation of the policy had become necessary since its partial implementation in January 2.Government had in 2019 announced that it would go cashless on toll payments at the Lekki/Ikoyi toll plaza effective from Jan. 1 due to the excessive delays experienced along the corridor with cash payments.


Oladeinde also warned against all corrupt practices such as photocopying payment vouchers for multiple usage or presenting fake e-payment devices.
