The Second Niger Bridge is now accessible to vehicles. A government official claimed that a few minor changes to the roads leading to the bridge were the cause of the delay.
The second vehicle to cross the bridge, Obinna Eze, pleaded with the current administration to finish it by May 2023. Babatunde Fashola (SAN), Minister of Works and Housing, announced that the Second Niger Bridge would be open to traffic from December 15, 2022, to January 15, 2023, to improve travel conditions over the holiday break. The 1.6-kilometer-long bridge connects the states of Delta and Anambra.
