2nd Niger Bridge and Lagos-Ibadan Expressway to be completed in 2022

The contractor handling both projects, Julius Berger Plc. announced in a press conference that both the second Niger bridge and the Lagos to Ibadan expressway will be completed in 2022. This timeline was made public by the special adviser to the vice president, Ajuri Ngilale, on his tweeter handle. He noted that the Lagos-Ibadan expressway is scheduled to be completed in the 3rd quarter of 2022, while the 2nd Niger Bridge is scheduled for completion in February of the same year.

The Buhari led federal government is determined to complete these projects before the end of the current administration.

The second Niger bridge is one of the most anticipated projects in this administration. It has been neglected, and paid lip service to, by previous administrations. It even became a political campaign tool, to woo voters from the South East of the country.

When these projects are completed, they will become one of the legacies of the Buhari administration. It will make life a lot easier for commuters plying that route.
