President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday commissioned the Second Niger Bridge in the South-East, six days to the end of his administration.
The Special Adviser to the President, Femi Adesina, disclosed this in a statement, saying the President also commissioned seven legacy projects completed by the Federal Ministry of Works and Housing across the country.
The Second Niger Bridge was conceptualised in 2005. In 2014, there was an attempt to begin the project through Public Private Partnership (PPP) but this was not successful. The construction began in 2016 with the Presidential Infrastructure Development Fund (PIDF).
