Meet Sunday Emem – The First Driver To EVER Pass Through The Second Niger Bridge
The bridge was open at exactly 9:50 am on Thursday, December 15, 2022, despite assurances by the Federal Government that the bridge will be opened at 12am.
According to a government official who spoke to Channels Television, the delay was a result of some little adjustments on the roads linking the bridge.
The first driver to pass through the Second Niger Bridge, Sunday Emem, has expressed tremendous joy for reaching the milestone.
Emem, in an exclusive interview with Channels Television, said he was really happy with the development.
He said, “I feel so happy, at least it will reduce the hold-up. We’ve stayed over one hour at the other bridge.”
The Second Niger Bridge was officially opened to motorists on Thursday.
Obinna Eze, the second driver to pass through the bridge, urged the present administration to complete it before May 2023.
“It is a reality, though it is not 100% complete, so far what we are seeing is impressive. We commend the present administration and we hope they complete it based on the time frame,” Eze said.
