Minister Umahi Explains Why Usage Of Second Niger Bridge Is Delayed

The Minister of Works, Dave Umahi, says the second Niger Bridge, recently completed and handed over to the ministry by the contractor, may be inoperative until the two bypasses in Asaba (Delta State) and Onitsha (Anambra State) are completed.

He however lamented that the construction of the bypasses could cost about N260bn, saying the construction had yet to take off because there was no funding.
