The infrastructure will now be officially known as Muhammadu Buhari Second Niger Bridge.

Recall that on Monday, May 22, 2023, Media Adviser to the President, Femi Adesina, in a statement announced that the president would commission three major bridges, three Federal Secretariats and a road.

He said the inauguration would be headlined by the Second Niger Bridge which was conceptualised in 2005.

Other bridges to be commissioned are the Loko-Oweto Bridge across River Benue to link Benue to Nasarawa State and the Ikom Bridge in Cross River State.
