The increment, endorsed by the management of FAAN, has not been explained to the public neither has any circular released before it was carried out.

So for those passing through the access gates of FAAN, the new rates which has taken effect already states that bus drivers will have to cough up N400, as against N200 previously charged, while cars and SUVs will pay N600, from the previous N300 while trucks will be charged N1000, a 100 percent increase from N500.
