The Federal Government says it has set aside funds under the Presidential Funding Initiative to ensure the timely completion of the Second Niger Bridge.
Vice President Yemi Osinbajo revealed this today when he inspected construction work on the project site in the company of Governor Willie Obiano.
Professor Osinbajo said the Federal Government is committed to completing the Bridge and its adjoining roads because of the prospect it holds for economic growth not only for the Southeast but also the entire country.
The bridge he noted, is one of the five projects the present administration at the centre has set out funds to ensure their completion.
The governor of Anambra state Chief Willie Obiano on his part observed that Southeast has a lot to gain if the bridge is completed, acknowledging that the present Federal Administration has shown that it wants the project completed on schedule.
