Construction of Second Niger Bridge Should Name after Buhari
Bashir Ahmad, the personal assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on New Media, on Thursday, February 10, 2022, said the Second Niger Bridge is named after President Muhammadu Buhari, and not his predecessor, Goodluck Jonathan, sparking debates on social media.
Taking to Twitter, the Personal Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on New Media, shared a video of the 1.6km bridge, describing it as a major connection point between two economically vital regions in Nigeria.
Ladies and gentlemen, the Muhammadu Buhari Bridge (MBB), a 1.6KM Bridge that will be a major connection point between two economically vital regions in Nigeria,” he tweeted.
The tweet, however, didn’t go down well with some users as one, @Arizona_CF, said, “The name is 2nd Niger bridge. Any other name doesn’t stand a chance.”
Another user, @Greenaetion also said, “It is not Muhammadu Buhari Bridge and it can never be. It wasn’t Buhari who initiated the project nor did he use his salary to construct the Bridge. That’s 2nd Niger Bridge or Southern Link Bridge.”
In defence of his principal, Ahmad responded saying, “So, can we call it Goodluck Jonathan Bridge for sketching the bridge? The bridge is to be called ‘Muhammadu Buhari Bridge’, read the name again and let it sink in your head.”
The Second Niger Bridge is being constructed to ease the burden on the Niger Bridge which links Onitsha and Asaba.
