As President Buhari Commissions Seven Legacy Projects 


President Muhammadu Buhari will commission seven legacy projects finished by the Federal Ministry of Works and Housing nationwide on Tuesday in order to carry out his administration’s commitment to improving and expanding the nation’s infrastructure stock.

According to a statement by Femi Adesina, Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, the Second Niger Bridge, which was planned in 2005, will be the focal point of the historic event, which consists of three main bridges, three federal secretariats, and a road.

A Public Private Partnership (PPP) attempt to start the project was made in 2014, but it was unsuccessful. With funding from the Presidential Infrastructure Development Fund (PIDF), development got underway in 2016.

Three new Federal Secretariats are also part of the road project, which also includes the completed section of the nearly 200-kilometer Kano-Kaduna Dual Carriage Expressway.
