FG Redesigns 2nd Niger Bridge From 2km To 7.9km – Ngige

by Happynaija

ENUGU—FEDERAL Government has said it has redesigned 2nd Niger Bridge from two kilometers to 7.9 kilometers.

The Minister of Labour and Employment, Senator Chris Ngige and his counterpart

in the Ministry of Science and Technology, Chief Ogbonnaya Onu,

made this known in Enugu yesterday, during the South East zonal

stakeholders meeting of the All Progressives Congress, APC.


The meeting was called to discuss the forthcoming congresses and

convention of the party in the south east zone.


They said that the government was executing one major project in each of the

six geopolitical zones including the second Niger Bridge in the South East,

the Abuja- Kaduna road, the Mambilla Power Project and the Lagos- Ibadan

road which were all estimated at over $1 billion.


In his speech, Ngige asked the Igbo to support the APC by voting for

President Muhammadu Buhari in the 2019 general elections,

which he said Buhari would win.


“I am over 67 years and getting to 68. I cannot deceive myself at this age.

President Buhari will win the 2019 election. There is no doubt about it.


“Those saying that the north will not vote for Buhari because

they are dying of hunger because of him are deceiving themselves.


“Northerners are happy and most of them are into farming because the

President has revolutionised agriculture.

There is money in agriculture.


“There are no northern labourers or Okada

(commercial motorcyclists) in Abuja now.

“Our people should vote for Buhari so that we can produce the

Nigerian president of Igbo extraction in 2023.”


Chief Ogbonnaya Onu also spoke in the same vein, adding that the Enugu- Onitsha

road and the Enugu- Port Harcourt roads were among the major roads

rehabilitated in the country since the advent of this administration,

adding that the Federal Medical Centre, Umuahia, Abia State had been given a

facelift even as the runway of the Akanu Ibiam International Airport,

Enugu , would be extended.


Earlier, the zonal   chairman of the party, Chief Emma Eneukwu,

had commended the leaders of the party in the   zone for their support which

led to the peace being witnessed in the states.


Those who attended the meeting included the former governor of old Anambra State,

Chief Jim Nwobodo, the former governor of Ebonyi State,

Chief Martin Elechi, Chief Gbazuagu Nweke Gbazuagu,

Senators Andy Uba, Osita Izunaso,

Ifeanyi Ararume among others.
