Fashola: Second Niger Bridge Will Be Completed In 2022 by NwaNimo1(m): 6:06pm On Nov 21
The Minister of Works and Housing, Mr. Babatunde Fashola, has reassured Nigerians that the ongoing construction of the 2nd Niger Bridge will be completed in 2022.

Fashola who gave the assurance during a town hall meeting to host communities of Anambra and Delta States, regretted that some grounds had been lost in the job occasioned by the conflicts and the coronavirus pandemic.

He commended governors of both states, Willie Obiano and Ifeanyi Okowa for their efforts in returning normalcy in the area.

He said, “The President asked me to assure you that nothing would stop the completion of the project in 2022.

“The project is on course; thanks to the governors of Anambra and Delta States, Willie Obiano and Ifeanyi Okowa for their efforts in returning normalcy here.

“Not withstanding, the initial conflict and COVID-19 heat, the project will be delivered as scheduled in 2022 .The President is committed to that date.”

While putting the cost of the project at N414bn, the Minister underscored the place of peace and sacrifice from the host communities.


“This is huge investment. We need peace to finish this work; we need patient, we need sacrifice. We shall remediate what you go through. You will not be left behind, we shall control the flooding resulting from the construction.

“Compensation is a big issue. It will be better for the state governments of Anambra and Delta States to engage the host communities while we (FG) deal with the state governments about issues of compensation . But the government does not have all the money. Even if oil price drops further, this project must continue.

Speaking on Zik masoluem, which he had earlier inspected, Fashola said management board had been constituted to handle the place so that the facility would not go into disuse.

He, however, called for concerted efforts in keeping the place in order, stating “Zik belongs to all of us.”

In their separate speeches, Obiano and Okowa thanked Buhari for ensuring that the 2nd Niger Bridge project stayed alive.

Obiano said, ” We we thank Mr President for keeping his words. We also commend the commitment of the honourable minister in this project .

Obiano who said he had resolved conflicts on the project five times from the Anambra side, urged the contractor, Julius Berger Plc to settle the contentious issues with the host communities.


He said,” The commitment made to the communities has not been met. We need absolute peace to realise this project.

“It’s important we support the FG by holding our youths. We shall ensure peace from the Anambra side. The multiplier effects of this bridge are already being felt. We shall continue to support this initiative, despite the odds.

On his part, Managing Director, Julius Berger, PLC, Lars Richter, said the project had reached 50.1 completion.

From the moment this administration started talking about the 2nd Niger Bridge, lets see what has been happening:

Govt: we will construct 2nd Niger bridge.

Ipob miscreants: Buhari is just deceiving himself.

When progress report started coming:

Govt: we are committed to the 2nd Niger bridge.

Ipob miscreants: gej started it.

Reasonable progress recorded:

Ipob miscreants: Is Buhari constructing it with his money?

Towards 2019 election:

Govt: we will complete the 2nd Niger bridge

Ipob miscreants: Buhari is trying to get our vote.

Immediately after the inauguration of the present administration:

Govt: we will complete 2nd Niger bridge.

Ipob miscreants: govt of lies and lies.

Reasonable progress recorded.

Ipob miscreants: is Buhari using his money to construct the bridge?

Hmmm, nawao. cheesy

Let's see what they say again. cheesy

Nonsense.

No true Igbo son or daughter will use that Fulani herdsman's bridge. Goatluck Jonaddaft has build 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th Niger Bridges.

Absolutely true.

Buhari is constructing the bridges so his cows will have easy passage to SE.

We igbos don't need the fulani jihadist bridge and we will not use it. undecided

In some parts of the World, skyscrapers and roads are built in a week too few months Max, what a Contrast.

uuzba:

In those parts of the world, they have good road network to transport all the machinery to site fast.
They use new functional machines because they make the machines in their own industries..
They have large scale farming and billions of chicken. So everybody can always eat cheap burgers and other cheap food..
They have electricity provided by nuclear sources, 24/7/365.
Their people all have jobs in industries, so nobody has time to go and destroy power lines because he went to sell stolen electric cables or petrol generator.

@uuzba i know, I was just Juxtaposing life in different Parts of the World, And how that is Just really interesting.

I see a lot of people already chest-beating, this project is already 8yrs in the making the idea should be to wait for its final completion. When the project is eventually completed we can then leave posterity to decide the fate of this present administration. Praise singing and rabble rousing is not going to affect the general consensus on the performance of this administration.

Praise singers of this administration should remember one thing, the same border wall against Mexico that got Trump elected is also one of the factors that got him voted out and unpopular especially amongst Latino voters.

Sycophants beware!
