President Muhammadu Buhari is set to inaugurate more critical infrastructure before leaving office in May this year.
Among the new projects ready for the inauguration is the Loko-Oweto Bridge over River Benue and the 74-kilometre Nasarawa-Loko Road linking Nasarawa and Benue states.
The Minister of Information Alhaji Lai Mohammed, who announced this at a press conference in Abuja on Thursday, described the road and the bridge as game changers and economy-booster for the two states in particular and the nation in general.
Mohammed said: “The Administration is ready to deliver another dividend of democracy to Nigerians. As you are aware, the much-ballyhooed Second Niger Bridge has been completed and will soon be commissioned. Well, I am happy to announce today that another highly-valuable bridge and road are ready for commissioning in the next few weeks.
