FG to commence work on 2nd Niger Bridge

Plans2016_06_14_55466 are underway by the Federal Govern­ment to commence work on the second Niger Bridge, the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed has said.
The minister, who gave the hint at the South-South town hall meeting held yesterday in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State, said the project was captured in the 2016 Budget.
Alhaji Mohammed list­ed some of the road con­struction works that have now resumed as including Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, Bode Sadu-Jebba road, Abuja-Lokoja road, Kano-Maiduguri road and the Loko and Oweto Bridge linking Nasarawa to Benue
This, according to him, will have a ripple effect towards creating job op­portunities for many Ni­gerians.
“As contractors are mo­bilised back to the various road construction projects across the country, con-struction and ancillary workers are returning to work in droves’’, he said.
The Minister further as­sured that the Buhari ad­ministration is on track in redeeming its promises to Ni-gerian, particularly in the three broad campaign areas of tackling insecurity, fighting corruption and re-vamping the economy.
