DISAPPOINTMENT : The Second Niger Bridge Cannot Be Completed Under Buhari, It Is Too Slow - Reps

Every past president of Nigeria for a long while now have all promised to complete the much awaited second Niger bridge. It is a loud talking point among Nigerian politicians every election year. They make campaigns with it and promise to complete the project in their tenure.

Many years have come and Gone and still the promise is yet to be kept. The story remains the same year in year out. President Buhari promised to complete the project and correct the notion that he is not too friendly with the south easterners. The promise looked like it will become a reality until recently the house of reps members dropped their verdict on the project.


The house of reps members dropped some key points on the second Niger bridge project which we will like to share with you.

1 . They stated that the Project is going too slow. It will be wishful thinking to believe that the project can be finished under buhari.

2 . The Contractors handling the project are also handling other Major projects in the country and they cannot meet up with the heavy work load.

3 . The Company in question ( Julius Berger ) collected N200b and are still not doing enough work on the various projects they were contracted to do ( Source Vanguard news )

The Major question on our lips today, Will The second Niger Bridge be ever Completed ? When are we finally going to use that bridge.
