Photos: President Jonathan Kick-Starts The 2nd Niger Bridge Construction.

President Jonathan today March 10th performed the groundbreaking ceremony for the construction of the 2nd Niger Bridge. The bridge which would cost N117.8 billion is expected to be completed within 48months. The 1st Niger bridge was built in 1965.
President Goodluck Jonathan Wrote on his Facebook page:
Today, as I perform the Ground Breaking Ceremony of the Second Niger Bridge, I am fulfilling a promise I made to all Nigerians and more specifically to the people of the Southeast that the Federal Government will ensure that another bridge linking the Southeast to other geo-political regions is built.

The impact of this bridge is beyond economics and commerce. This bridge, when completed, will strengthen the Handshake Across the Niger and promote integration amongst the people of Nigeria.
Building bridges, and not just physical ones, is something every Nigerian should be engaged in and this administration has taken extra ordinary measures, including the convocation of a National Conference amongst our people, to ensure that just as the physical bridges are being constructed, Nigerians from all geo-political zones can construct new bridges of friendship even as we strengthen old ones.
