S’East ‘eternally grateful’ to Buhari for Second Niger Bridge – Soludo

GOVERNOR Chukwuma Soludo has praised President Muhammadu Buhari’s delivery of the Second Niger Bridge, a project he says the South-East region is grateful for.

“I had to make efforts to be there personally for the commissioning of that project. It is a major game-changer,” he said on Channels Television’s Politics Today.

“It is a very important project and we are eternally grateful to President Buhari for delivering on that agenda,” Soludo added.

According to him, the Second Niger Bridge is one of the five core projects the South-East has been clamouring for in the region.

While others are yet to be done, he believes the completion of the Second Niger Bridge is a step in the right direction.

“But we are now eternally grateful that at least one of five [has been done],” the former CBN governor said.

“It is a promise made and a promise kept,” he said, restating that “for us, it is a game-changer and would decongest traffic, and create a twin city between Asaba and Onitsha”.
