Hit And Run Driver Injures Two On Lagos-Badagry Expressway

The Federal Government said installation of closed-circuit television (CCTV) and solar lights is currently ongoing as part of security measures at the Third Mainland Bridge in Lagos.

Minister David Umahi disclosed this in an interview on Channels Television’s Sunday Politics.

Recall that the bridge has been under repairs for weeks, causing gridlock to motorists and other road users.

But, according to the minister, the Third Mainland Bridge is billed to reopen in the coming days.

He said the repair work on the bridge and the installation of CCTV were targeted at combatting crime and illegal mining around the bridge.

Umahi said, “When you talk about the total rehabilitation of the bridge, you talk about the deck,”

“Mr President has released the money and I can say that 99 per cent of the project is done. But what is to be done is additional work: we are putting up solar lights; we are replacing the generator lights with solar lights.

“We are putting up CCTV both on top of the bridge and under the bridge because the president told me that part of the problem we are having is people who are doing illegal mining of the sand. And I agree with him. I have seen it. They even go as far as even destroying the concrete to anchor their small boats.”

Meanwhile, the former Ebonyi State governor said God told him that President Bola Tinubu will be re-elected as Nigeria’s president in 2027.

He said, “You must know that the coming onboard of Mr President is divine. When God starts a thing, He completes it.

“So, I strongly believe and I am persuaded to let you know that God told me that this administration will last eight years because this administration is born of God.”

“You can see the miracle that Mr President is doing through the inspiration of God Almighty who brought him to right all the wrongs,” the minister noted on the show.

“So, we are taking back this country and giving back this country to Nigerians and that’s what Mr President has come to do and we are just there to give him support.”
