Bashir Ahmad Receives Backlash For Saying Second Niger Bridge Is Buhari’s ‘Gift’ To Nigerians

Bashir Ahmed

Bashir Ahmad, the Special Assistant on New Media to President Buhari, has come under fire for his recent comment about the ongoing construction of the Second Niger Bridge.

On May 17th, Ahmad on his official Twitter wrote;

Angered by this tweet, many Nigerians took to Twitter to heavily tongue lash Bashir Ahmad. 

A Twitter user, @Tife_fabunmi, wrote;

If completing the Niger Bridge is a GIFT to Nigerians from the President (according to Sir Bashir) then what exactly are the responsibilities of the President?
Ghosting and Modeling?

Another user tweeted;

The kind of accolades Bashir and co and looking for, you will think that this 2nd Niger bridge is a new one and not the same one they claim to have be working on for the past 5yrs. 2nd Niger Bridge starting to look like Amaechi’s monorail abi Lagos’ light rail project.

In one tweet, @NekkaSmith said, “Nigeria’s money! Not Buhari’s gift. Nigeria is bigger than one man.”

The Second Niger Bridge project was initiated by the former President Goodluck Jonathan during his administration.

The vision has been sustained by the present government of President Buhari and over N200 billion has been invested in the project since inception.

The bridge is being constructed across Nigeria’s Niger River and will span from Asaba to Ozubulu and Ogbaru areas.

It is also being managed by the Federal Ministry of Power, Works and Housing jointly with the Nigerian Sovereign Investment Authority.
