THE ECONOMIC PROSPERITY OF NDIGBO - WHY I MOVED THE MOTION FOR THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE SECOND NIGER BRIDGE - Obinna Chidoka




In Augus2014, the Federal Government of Nigeria (FGN) through the Nigeria Sovereign Investment Authority (NSIA) issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) from local and international Technical, Operation & Maintenance, Legal, Engineering etc advisers/consultants to give life to the 2nd Niger Bridge project; which until then was only a motion I moved on the floor of the House of Representatives in 2008. 7 years later and it is a N130Billion world class infrastructural project traversing the South-Eastern Corridor of Nigeria and running right through Idemili North and South Local Government Areas of Anambra State.

The River      Niger      Bridge      in Onitsha (also      known     as     the Onitsha      Bridge), Anambra State Nigeria connects  South - Eastern   Nigeria  with South-western   part of Nigeria  over the River Niger. Between  1964 and  1965, the Federal Government  of Nigeria,  constructed  the  Niger Bridge,  to link Onitsha  and Asaba in  present-day  Anambra  and Delta States respectively.

The existing Niger Bridge is stretched to capacity especially during peak periods and was believed to be structurally weak and unstable and it posed a great danger for motorist and Easterners. I moved the motion for the rehabilitation of this present Niger Bridge and it was rehabilitated.

But I also saw the need for more to boost the trade and commerce between the South-Easterners and the rest of the World for the Economic prosperity of not only the rich, but for everyone; both young, old, very rich, not so rich, artisan, men, women and every other people; so I moved the Motion for the “Construction of a Second Niger Bridge”.

Thus it was a great pleasure to me when the Federal Government decided  to construct  'The Second  River Niger  Bridge'  under a Public  Private  Partnership  ("PPP")  framework; to promote  regional  integratio and  facilitate  the flow of goods  to and  from  the eastern commercial  hub of Onitsha, the East and the western part of the country.  For interstate traffic, the bridge and access road network will also serve as a bypass of the busy urban centers of Onitsha and Asaba.

The Project includes the construction of a 11.9 km road and bridge project connecting Delta State and Anambra State through Asaba and Onitsha. The Second Niger Bridge is divided into four distinct components and will be six lanes of traffic (3X3).

1.        There is the Asaba road section
2.       the Toll Plaza Section
3.       the bridge section, and lastly
4.      the Onitsha road section.

For the Economic prosperity of Ndigbo, Ndi Idemili … this is WHY.
