Special Issue on Entrepreneurship and Responsible Investment in Tolling in Nigeria: Prospects, Strategies, Challenges and Solutions

Entrepreneurship as driver of economic development is not in doubt in the development literature. Entrepreneurship has been extended to cover investment and opportunity seeking in Tolling. Tolling is the construction of roads and bridges, maintenance and collecting of revenue arising therefrom to cover costs and margin of returns on investment. In spite of the merits of tolling as a major source of revenue for governments, it has a number of demerits in practical terms in public finance. These inherent demerits explain why different nations adopt distinct tolling systems that fit their level of socio-economic and technological development. The purpose of this SPECIAL ISSUE is to discuss in context the prevalent arguments for tolls collection on roads and bridges in developing countries, the operational challenges of investment under the Public-Private Partnership (PPP) arrangement. This SPECIAL EDITION calls for theoretical and empirical papers from academics and practitioners on different segments of the theme.

The scope of topics covered in the this issue include:

  • Entrepreneurship Development through private sector investment in tolls and tolls collecting.
