Atiku Abubakar, former vice-president, has hailed Ahmadu Fintiri, Adamawa governor, on the completion of the “first” overhead bridge in the north-east.

Although Borno had commenced the construction of what was referred to as the “first” overhead bridge in the north-east in January 2020, the project is yet to be completed — the contractor says the bridge will be ready for use in September 2021.

The overhead bridge in Adamawa, inaugurated by the former vice-president on Saturday, has an eight-lane dual carriageway expansion beginning from the popular Maidoki roundabout and terminating at Bishop street junction.

Speaking during the event, Atiku commended the Adamawa governor for the project.


“It is to the credit of this project that Jimeta is now wearing a new look. My spirit is always uplifted, energised by seeing elected government officials working to transform lives and change societies,” he said.

James Barka, former acting governor of the state, and Henry Okobiz, the Esele of Edo in the state, also commended the governor for the achievement.

In his remarks, Fintiri said the inauguration was part of the activities marking his second anniversary as governor.


He added that the people of Adamawa have every reason to celebrate the presence of the infrastructural projects his administration had put in place, which they can see and touch.

He thanked the former vice-president, who doubles as the Waziri Adamawa, for honouring his invitation.

The bridge is named after Aliyu Mustafa, the late Lamido of Adamawa.
