Second Niger Bridge: Fashola Confirms Completion

Minister of works and housing; Mr. Babatunde Fashola has confirmed the completion of the Second Niger Bridge stating that it would soon be opened for public use.

Fashola, who stated this yesterday at the unveiling of President Muhammadu Buhari’s scorecard series (2015-2023) in Abuja, noted thus:

“Second Niger Bridge has been completed, what is remaining is a 4km interchange road at the Asaba end and 2km out of a 7km link road at the Onitsha end.

“The first thing we did when we came into power was to expand our budget on road infrastructure, sought alternative sources of funding through SUKUK, Infrastructure Tax Credit Scheme,” Fashola said.

The bridge, which was conceived years ago before the Buhari administration came on board, became a reality, following the decision of the federal government, through the Ministry of Works and Housing, to ensure that a new bridge is put in place to complement the existing one, which is over 50 years old.
