The Federal Government led by President Muhammadu Buhari, is working towards completing the second Niger Bridge by 2022, the Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr. Chris Ngige, said on Wednesday.
He stated that 75 percent of the work has been done.
According to Ngige, the South-East has never had it so good from the Federal Government.
In an interview in Awka, the Anambra State capital, the former Senator said that President Muhammadu Buhari is determined to leave a lasting legacy for the Igbos.
Elsewhere, ahead of next year’s Governorship election in Anambra State, Ngige stated that the All Progressives Congress, APC, would find a credible person to replace Governor Willie Obiano.
The former Anambra State Governor, revealed that consultations are on to get an industrious Candidate, who can take the State to the next level.
Ngige, who represented Anambra Central at the Senate, stressed that the APC is looking towards the Central and South Senatorial zones for a credible Candidate to fly the party’s flag, in 2021.
He maintained that no government in the State has matched his administration’s achievements within 33 months.
To him, the ruling All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, has failed the State.
He noted that having disappointed the people, it is time for the APC to take over from APGA.
Ngige said: “We cannot continue to pretend that all is well. The present administration in the State has performed abysmally, and it is time for them to go.
“It is time for us to come as a united front to take them out, and we have the people to do it from the Wards, Local Government, and State.”
