, has mandated the redesign of the Onitsha bypass for the 2nd Niger Bridge due to flaws and overestimation in the initial design.This is as the minister directed contractors working on federal road projects in the Southeast and South-South regions to accelerate work while ensuring compliance with contract specifications.

Umahi attributed his work ethic were some of the ideals in the Renewed Hope mantra under his Ministry including design and cost-effectiveness, speed and standard of job delivery as well as innovations that would guarantee zero maintenance and durability of road infrastructure in Nigeria, said, “And just only two days back, with these leaders, we went to Asaba to look at the design of the bypass of the second Niger bridge, and we went to Onitsha.

Of the project along Eleme refinery road, the Minister was quoted as saying, “We are upgrading the 15km road between Eleme flyovers to Onne junction. We are starting with excavation to fill all the failed sections to make them stable. And when we get to where stable, we build up the boulders. After boulders, we put up sharp sand, and after the sharp sand, we compact.

The stakeholders from the southeast, who joined the Minister on the inspection tour, also expressed gratitude to President Tinubu for his decisive and confidence-inspiring measures aimed at revitalizing the country’s economy, with competent aides appointed to support him in this endeavour. On his part, former SGF, Sen. Anyim, said: “I want to remind you that the day the Honourable Minister took an oath of office, he had a reception and I chaired it and I reassured Nigerians that he would exceed their expectations.
