Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Mr Babatunde Fashola, says the Federal Government is committed to completing the second Niger Bridge and Zik’s Mausoleum.

Speaking on Monday when he visited Onitsha to inspect the progress of work on the second Niger Bridge and other major projects, the minister said when completed, the bridge would accelerate economic prosperity in the area.

“I came here in pursuant of the commitment of the Federal Government and that of President Muhammadu Buhari to complete the bridge.

“It will give relief to the first Niger Bridge and also help in ensuring that it is now kept in a good state of repair and maintenance,” Fashola said.

The minister, who was accompanied by Governor Willie Obiano, some traditional rulers and other state functionaries, after visiting the second Niger Bridge, also visited Zik’s Mausoleum. Other projects visited were the Umunya axis of the Enugu-Onitsha Express Way and the Nkpor Fly-over bridge near Onitsha, among others.
