President Muhammadu Buhari’s Private Assistant on New Media, Bashir Ahmad, has mentioned the second Niger bridge is known as after the president.
Ahmad mentioned the Second Niger Bridge is known as after Buhari and never the speedy previous president, Goodluck Jonathan.
In a sequence of tweets, the presidential aide shared a video of the 1.6km bridge on social media, which he described as a serious connection level between two economically very important areas in Nigeria.
In line with Ahmad: “Girls and gents, the Muhammadu Buhari Bridge (MBB), a 1.6KM Bridge that will probably be a serious connection level between two economically very important areas in Nigeria.”
However, some Twitter customers objected to the identify, saying the bridge ought to be named Second Niger Bridge, and never Buhari.
@Arizona_CF, objected, tweeted: “The identify is 2nd Niger Bridge. Every other identify doesn’t stand an opportunity.”
@Greenaetion mentioned, “It isn’t Muhammadu Buhari Bridge and it will probably by no means be. It wasn’t Buhari who initiated the mission nor did he use his wage to assemble the Bridge. That’s 2nd Niger Bridge or Southern Hyperlink Bridge.”
Reacting, Ahmad insisted that the bridge will probably be named Buhari and never Jonathan
He tweeted, “So, can we name it Goodluck Jonathan Bridge for sketching the bridge? The bridge is to be referred to as ‘Muhammadu Buhari Bridge’, learn the identify once more and let it sink in your head.”
The Second Niger Bridge, which hyperlinks Onitsha and Asaba, began throughout Jonathan’s administration in 2014. NAIJATABLOID
