The Vice President, Prof Yemi Osinbajo on Friday reassured the people of South East and South-South geopolitical zones that the Federal Government would complete the second Niger Bridge on schedule.
While describing the second Niger bridge project as a priority to President Muhammadu Buhari, Osinbajo reaffirmed the Federal Government’s commitment to ensuring that the country remained united, where nobody would be oppressed.
He said, “We are all brothers regardless of religion, ethnicity or political affiliation.
“We want to make sure that even in terms of execution of projects, we are fair and just, which is the commitment that the president has made.
“The President is committed to ensuring that he brings this to fulfilment.”
The VP, who inspected the Delta State axis of the Second Niger Bridge, reassured the people that the Federal Government was committed to completing the project and the access roads.
He said,” We want to make sure that we complete it because of its economic benefit to the zone and the entire country.
“The Second Niger Bridge is among the five projects where money has actually been set aside under a Presidential funding initiative to ensure completion.
“So, we have no fears that it will be completed as promised and scheduled,” he added.
