Second Niger Bridge Will Be Completed In 2022- Fashola

The Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, says the Second Niger Bridge which is currently being constructed, will be completed in 2022.

Fashola spoke at a forum organized by the News Agency of Nigeria to mark the sixth anniversary of the Buhari administration in Abuja, today June 20.

According to Fashola, the bridge, which will serve as a major link between the south-east and the south-west will be delivered between the second and third quarters of 2022.

“So, what you see currently is the final work. The sub-structure which entailed building cement structures underwater often costs a lot of money. We should finish the bridge next year between the second quarter and third quarter.” he said

The bridge is 1.6km long and furnished with other ancillary infrastructure, including a 10.3km highway and an interchange. The bridge spans from Asaba in Delta state to Ozubulu, Ogbaru, and other communities in Anambra state.

Throughout history, builders have always been revered for their ability to mold the natural elements into something new, perhaps something  never seen before. Building is therefore a creative act on a momentous scale.

Today's Quote

“Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
