The people of South Easterners have long suffered from negligence by past administrations especially as it concerns the building of a second Niger Bridge for the Southeast. 

Today, the narrative has changed, the long-awaited dream of South-easterners has been made a reality as President Muhammadu Buhari (GCFR) has fulfilled a promise made to Ndi Igbo by awarding to Julius Berger a 366 Billion Naira 2nd Niger bridge which is 55% completed. 

The Imo State Governor, Distinguished Senator Hope Uzodimma led other Southeastern Leaders to the 2nd Niger bridge to ascertain the level of work and also commended President Buhari for the level and quality of ongoing work despite the economic challenge of the Nation as they Inspected the 2nd Niger Bridge at Anambra State.
