The Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, had announced the closure of the bridge on July 24, 2020 for repair works to be carried out on it but the government on Saturday reopened the bridge which spans over 11.8km.

The Ministers of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola and his Water Resources counterpart, Sulaiman Adamu, made the disclosure when they briefed State House correspondents on the outcome of the FEC meeting.

The PDP however described as disheartening that a highly respected minister like Fashola has failed to explain how such amount of money was allegedly diverted through surreptitious payments in 654 tranches to 21 private bank accounts in a space of two months, a situation which the party said highlights the level of rot in that ministry in the years of its existence under his watch.
