Concise News reports that the country’s number two citizen gave the assurance after inspecting the progress of work at the Asaba end of the Second Niger Bridge project on Friday.
The vice president said the bridge was not only important for the economy of the South East, but for that of the entire country.
”The Second Niger Bridge is so important for the economy of the South East and for the Nigerian economy, and of course, it is not just the bridge, there are the access roads, which are also very important,” a statement from his media aide, Laolu Akande, read.
“It is obvious so much progress has been made here; it is an important project that the President is committed to completing.
”In the past 18 months or so, a lot work has been done and I came to see for myself.
“As you can see, the foundation goes all the way down, and this is just the Asaba end of the bridge. There is also the Anambra end of the bridge, so it is a lot of work.
“There is a huge number of people who are also benefiting in various ways as the project progresses.”
