The N369 billion Second Niger Bridge in the Southeast is President Muhammadu Buhari’s biggest capital project, Senate Chief Whip Orji Uzor Kalu has said.
He spoke on Thursday in his Camp Neya country home in Igbere, Abia State.
The senator described the N369 billion Second Niger Bridge as the Federal Government’s single biggest capital project to be cited in any geo-political zone in the country.
“The president still has 17 months in office and has a role to play in 2023. He may surprise the Southeast zone,” Kalu said.
He said his administration’s commitment to the 100 per cent budget implementation in 2020 and 2021 has been unprecedented since 1999.
The Senator said: “No past president or governor in the country has been able to achieve full implementation of the budget since the present democratic dispensation.”
