The Federal Government on Thursday opened the second Niger Bridge between Asaba in Delta State and Onitsha in Anambra State to motorists for temporary use.
A NAN Correspondent who visited the bridge observed that vehicles were plying it from Asaba to Onitsha on top speed.
The Federal Government had promised to open the bridge for temporary use from December 15, 2022 to January 15, 2023.
