Angry Caroline Danjuma blasts Lagos State Govt after she receives notification of increment on toll gate charges

Nollywood actress Caroline Danjuma is not here for Lagos State Government after they served her a notice about increment on toll gate charges. Danjuma took to her Instagram page to blast the government for their insensitivity towards the plight of its residents.
She lamented about the increase in suicide rate and the all the terrible things happening in the country.

Here's what she wrote.

On my out of Lekki this morning I received this notifying me that within 4 days there will be an increment to the toll gate tariff.. The question is what do this Govt take the citizens for.. ATM machines they can collect from at will??.. things are extremely tough in this country for the lay man . Suicidal rate is extremely high .. Drug abuse is now a norm because people are trying to get high to get away from the pain, leading to the deaths of young vibrant youths in the society . I would like to know in details and statistics what the government uses our taxes for . 1. The hard currency rate is still increasing against the Naira.. this alone affects business's both existing and new .. a lot of companies have gone further to let go of their staff due to the fact they can't meet up with the expenses , some have even gone as far as closing down . Unemployment is extremely high, kids are out of school , innovation is halted , no capital to run it . 2. If this increment is for the refurbishment of state hospitals , are we going to get free medicals with our NHS number? Last time I went to LUTH I had to buy the doctor literally everything including hand gloves before he could operate on the man I volunteered to help . 3. Is it to rebrand the police force? Will they have better accommodation than the deplorable one they live in now? Will they be well equipped and well trained? Will they be paid a substantial salary which will stop them from collecting bribes on the road? 4. Will all these taxes be used to build rehabs and homes for the homeless? Pls note that NGO's are operated by individuals n not the Gov. We pay all sorts of taxes in this country with very few accounted for , all the government does is create new ways of taking money from the masses and at their own will, they impose it without a care in the world . With this new tariff, there will be increment in transportation fare, resulting to increase in salary . More buisness will close down , more people will be jobless , more people will be prone to suicide and drug abuse , people can hardly pay for their rent.While the rich are getting richer the poor are getting poorer.. the youths will rather invest their energy on social media spewing hate on unnecessary things rather than tackling the economical situation heads on with the government . Unemployment is on the high, prostitution is high, our young men are turning gay because someone is paying them for an unholy act , drug abuse is on the increase , a whole lot of kids are out of school and roaming the streets looking for what to eat . People are dying at the hospital because they can't meet up with the ridiculous bills, even when there are no adequate equipment and well trained doctors , we spend so much on diesel , PHCN can decide to slam you with any amount that comes to their mind , we need visa's for every country we go to . Our airport is in a sorry state . I can go on and on . We all need a concrete explanation to how our taxes are used . Nigerians are good at suffering and smiling .. when it's time for election , packets of sugar with the face of the politician on it , one tuber of yam , one sad small bag of rice will be distributed and we will all be fine with it , some of us will take a bullet for those items just because we want to vote.. come 2019 I hope there will be change.. STOP selling ur comfort and future for peanuts . #ispeakforthelesspriviledge.
