Former Kaduna State Senator, Shehu Sani appears to have reacted to the naming of the Second Niger Bridge after President Muhammadu Buhari by governors of the South-East states.

“Pray For God’s Intervention In Our Political Activities” – Babangida Tells Nigerians

Recall that the five governors comprising Enugu, Imo, Abia, Anambra, and Ebonyi collectively decided to name the bridge after the president.

The president’s personal assistant on media, Buhari Sallau, who disclosed this on his Facebook page, said that after careful consultations, the governors reached an agreement to officially designate the bridge as the “Muhammadu Buhari Second Niger Bridge.”

During the virtual inauguration of the bridge on Tuesday, Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodinma acknowledged that President Buhari had fulfilled his promise to the region despite the south-east not voting for him in the elections.

Uzodinma said, “He asked for our votes, we did not give him. He made a promise and now he has fulfilled the promise even though we didn’t vote for him.”

Taking to his official Twitter handle on Tuesday, Shehu Sani recalled that former military President, General Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida (IBB) constructed some major infrastructures in the country but did not name them after himself.

He listed these infrastructures to include the Third Mainland Bridge in Lagos, Abuja multiple bridges, airports, ports, and even a refinery.

He wrote, “IBB constructed third mainland Bridge Lagos, Abuja multiple Bridges, Airports, Ports and even a refinery but forgot to name it after himself.”
