Ex-President Jonathan Finally Vindicated, As 15 Powerful Revelations Emerge On The Construction Of The Second Niger Bridge Under President Buhari’s Watch

Doyin Okupe, former Aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, has made what he called 15 revelations about the Second Niger Bridge.

In a message he titled: “GEJ, Buhari & The People”, Okupe wrote:

[1] The Bridge is NOT Being constructed by the Federal Government of Nigeria, FGN.

[2] It is a Public-Private Partnership, PPP, Project which the FGN contributes a tiny fraction.

[3] The 2nd Niger Bridge Will Cost about N117 billion.

[4] It started in 2013 and should have been completed in 2017, but worked stopped for 31 months. Completion date Not certain now.

[5] FGN share of the Cost is N30 billion. Jonathan through the Sure-P paid N21.2 billion (71 percent ) including N7billion for the completion of preparatory work (Phase 1).

[6] 38 percent of the work has been done as at January 2015.

[7] The N140 Billion Oshiomhole said was wasted on Administration cost on the bridge was a lie, as administration cost will not be higher the to cost of the whole project.

[8] Buhari’s Govt Paid N2billion NOT $2 billion as Osinbajo said during the Anambra state election. They will be paying another N3.05 when 2018 budget is approved.

[9] Work has restarted in earnest at the site and about 5 percent to 7 percent has been completed bring the total completed work to about 43 percent to 45 percent according to an engineer I spoke to.

[10] All the pictures flying all over the internet are pictures of work-in-progress made during the 1st quarter of 2015.

[11] In summary Jonathan Governemt have paid 71 percent of FGN share of the cost, While Buhari’s Government has paid 6.1 percent.

[12] Julius Berger, the Major Contractor and Construction company will put Toll Gate on Completion of the Bridge to cover their cost.

[13] The Construction Company is Funding the Project and the People using the Bridge will bear the cost via Toll Charges.

[14] The real People building the Bride are Nigerians that will use the Bridge, as they will REPAY the cost to Julius Berger.

[15] For those celebrating Politicians and sharing old or fake pictures of 2nd Niger Bridge, the #Facts are Not on your side.
