The federal government has made good its promise to commence work on the Second Niger Bridge in the year 2017.
Our correspondent, who visited the site, confirmed that a flurry of activities were visible at the site.
The Minister of labour and employment, Senator Chris Ngige had, in a Television programme, assured that that the federal executive council had approved N14 billion to the contractors to commence work immediately.
He had also said that the amount was accommodated in the 2017 budget.
Construction giants, Julius Berger had left the site unattended after series of controversies enmeshed the job.
Elombah.com is yet to confirm, though, that work had also started on the Enugu-Onitsha and Nnewi- Okigwe federal highways, as well as the Enugu-Aba-Port Harcourt expressway as stated by Senator Chris Ngige.
We will, however, visit all the sites to confirm the Senator’s claims.
