2nd Niger Bridge Will Bring Prosperity To South East, Says Soludo

Governor of Anambra State, Charles Soludo has said that the Second Niger Bridge will bring a new wave of prosperity and economic growth in the South-East geopolitical zone.

Soludo who spoke during the commissioning and handover of the bridge on Tuesday said he was overjoyed because the people of South-East had long advocated for this type of infrastructural development.

He also listed four other major projects desired in the region, including the dredging of three channels that would give the South East access to the Atlantic Ocean, the construction of the Anambra-Lokoja Road, the gas pipeline, and the railway line.

“Of the five requests we made earlier, it gives us great pleasure to check one off the list: the construction of the second Niger Bridge.

“President Buhari, the South-East will remember you as you leave office.

"It will not be a mistake to refer to the Minister of Works, Babatunde Fashola, as Mr Infrastructure. This is indeed a fulfilled promise.

“We express our heartfelt gratitude for connecting Anambra, Asaba, and Delta."

Earlier, President Buhari expressed delight at being able to provide developmental services as part of his efforts to upgrade and renew Nigeria’s infrastructure, stressing that it is used to combat poverty and promote economic growth for the people.
