Bridge Built By Kogi State Government Collapses One Week After Construction [PHOTOS]

The governor of Kogi state and the Aspirant of the 2023 Nigerian Presidential election, Hon. Yahaya Adoza Bello together with his administration have been criticized due to the collapse of a bridge constructed not up to a week ago.

This bridge is located at Okengwe, Okene Local Government Area of Kogi, it is known as the Ozuma Bridge.

The investigation revealed that the contractor of the project used 10mm steel bars to strengthen the bridge. At the same time, 10mm rebar is used for homes and smaller projects such as driveways with minimal loads.

For large projects such as bridge construction, larger diameter steel bars must be used, especially for durability. It's a shame that only a heavy truck knocked down the bridge.

Fortunately, no one was killed and no one was seriously injured. Both the government and contractors need to do better.
