Nigerians React As Osinbajo Gives Update On 2nd Niger Bridge
 

A storm of reactions by Nigerians has greeted the assurance by  Nigeria’s Vice President Yemi Osinbajo that President Muhammadu Buhari led Federal Government will complete the second Niger Bridge on schedule

Naija News reports that Osinbajo gave the assurance to the people of South East and South-South geopolitical zones during a one-day visit to Anambra State to launch the second phase of TraderMoni, a federal government micro-credit scheme for petty traders.

While describing the second Niger bridge project as a priority to All Progressives Congress (APC) government, the Vice President reaffirmed the Federal Government’s commitment to ensuring that the country remained united, where nobody would be oppressed.

His words: “We are all brothers regardless of religion, ethnicity or political affiliation.

“We want to make sure that even in terms of execution of projects, we are fair and just, which is the commitment that the president has made.

“The President is committed to ensuring that he brings this to fulfilment.”

Osinbajo, who inspected the Delta State axis of the Second Niger Bridge, reassured the people that the Federal Government was committed to completing the project and the access roads.

His words: ”We want to make sure that we complete it because of its economic benefit to the zone and the entire country.

“The Second Niger Bridge is among the five projects where money has actually been set aside under a Presidential funding initiative to ensure completion.

“So, we have no fears that it will be completed as promised and scheduled,” he added.

Moments after pictures of the Vice President inspecting the site surfaced, Nigerians took to the micro-blogging site, Twitter, to air their opinions on the construction of the 2nd Niger Bridge.
