The Southeast governors have agreed to name the Second Niger Bridge after President Muhammadu Buhari.
Buhari’s Special Assistant on Digital/New Media, Tolu Ogunlesi and his Special Assistant on Digital Communications, Bashir Ahmad, disclosed this on Tuesday.
Ahmad said the Second Niger Bridge will now be called Buhari Bridge.
Tweeting, Ahmad wrote: “The Second Niger Bridge is to officially be known as MUHAMMADU BUHARI SECOND NIGER BRIDGE.
“The MUHAMMADU BUHARI BRIDGE is officially commissioned today, by President Muhammadu Buhari. #PMBLegacy.”
Also, Ogunlesi tweeted: “Following consultations, the Governors of the South-East have agreed that the Second Niger Bridge shall be named the MUHAMMADU BUHARI SECOND NIGER BRIDGE.”
The administration of former President Goodluck Jonathan started the Second Niger Bridge.
The Second Niger Bridge connects the Southeast to the Western part of Nigeria.
