$700m second Niger Bridge money missing - Oshiomhole

Governor Adams Oshiomhole of Edo State has called on a former minister of work, Mike Onolememen, to explain to Nigerians the whereabouts of $700 million (N140 billion) released for the unexecuted second Niger bridge project.

Mr. Oshiomhole said in a statement by his chief press secretary, Peter Okhiria, that he stood by an earlier statement that $700 million was drawn from the sovereign wealth funds for the project.

“Rather than crucify Comrade Oshiomhole for the disclosure, former Minister of Works should direct his energy and explanation to the managers of the Sovereign Wealth Fund who have depleted the savings on the explanation that it was meant for the 2nd Niger Bridge,” the statement said.
