Federal Govt Releases N33bn For 2nd Niger Bridge To Be Completed In 2022

A total amount of N33bn has so far been released for the implementation of the second Niger Bridge project.

The Managing Director, Nigerian Sovereign Investment Authority, Mr. Uche Orji, gave the figure while speaking shortly after an inspection of the project. Orji visited the site with the Obi of Onitsha, Nnaemeka Achebe, who was accompanied by some of his chiefs.

The project, which is being handled by Julius Berger Plc, was awarded in 2014 by the administration of former President Goodluck Jonathan. The Second Niger Bridge project, which is estimated to gulp about N220bn, has been experiencing delays owing to various challenges which had affected its timely implementation.

Speaking on the development, Orji expressed optimism that the project, which is estimated to gulp about N220bn, would not experience further delay. He said that private sector funding for the project was being planned to be raised by 2020 through bond and equity.
