Punch Editorial: LCC makes N15m a day on Lekki toll gate – Investigation BY KUNLE FALAYI AND TUNDE AJAJA

Liadi left his Lekki home in his SUV for Victoria Island. He is a regular motorist who shuttles between Lekki and other parts of the Lagos Island. But this day, he had already passed through the toll plaza at Admiralty Way before he remembered that he had forgotten a very important document which he left on his bed. He was so furious with himself because he didn’t have any other choice but to drive back home to be able to make any headway in his business that day. And when he thought about the rigours of passing through the toll plaza especially where he would have to queue for minutes to be able to pay his toll, he was full of regret that he still had to endure the experience. Liadi told Saturday PUNCH, “I was stuck in traffic as a result of the gridlock at the  toll-gate at Admiralty Way for a long time around 9 am that day.

There are many engineers who have not made a success of their callings because they are lacking in this important personality trait. You can therefore say that, even among engineers, you can find men and women who are intelligent failures. What is Confidence? The Oxford Advanced Learner’s Dictionary defines confi


RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN COREN AND NIGERIAN SOCIETY OF ENGNEERS The two are separate and different bodies so that they cannot be referred to interchangeably. The Nigerian Society of Engineers (NSE) is a voluntary association established by the practitioners of the profession while the Council for the Regulation of Engineering in Nigeria (COREN) is a statutory organ of Federal Government, established by decree and concerned with certificate of persons for the purpose of practicing the engineering profession in Nigeria. COREN being the regulatory body for the engineering family in Nigeria, it is therefore necessary to have relevant portions of relevant COREN publications reproduced to serve for both emphasis and as information to all.
