The Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, SAN, stated this at a press briefing to present the President Muhammadu Buhari’ scorecard in Abuja on Wednesday.

According to Minister, the only factor delaying the commissioning of the project was the construction of the link road, which the recent surge of flooding has impeded.

Fashola said, “I can confirm that the second Niger bridge itself is finished. People can walk through the bridge now unimpeded. What remains is the four-kilometer link road on the Asaba side.

“Right now, our dredger is in place, we have to rebuild the road by reclaiming sand, the recent surge of flood has slowed us down. On the Onitsha side, there is a 7kilometer road that links the bridge and the Onitsha-Owerri interchange.
