  • FG has completed second Niger Bridge. 

THE NATION REPORTERS reports that the Federal Government has announced the completion of the the construction of the 2nd Niger bridge.

The Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, who confirmed the development on Wednesday, said that the construction of the 2nd Niger bridge is now completed and will soon be released to the public for use.

He stated this at an ongoing press briefing to present the President Muhammadu Buhari’s scorecard in Abuja.

According to him, the only factor delaying the commissioning of the road is the construction of the link road which the recent surge of flooding has impeded.

He said, “I can confirm that the second Niger bridge itself is finished. People can walk through the bridge now unimpeded. What remains is the four-kilometer link road on the Asaba side.

“Right now, our dredger is in place, we have to rebuild the road by reclaiming sand, the recent surge of flood has slowed us down. On the Onitsha side, there is a 7kilometer road that links the bridge and the Onitsha-Owerri interchange.”
