Lagos State governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu’s special adviser has recently told the press that the current administration will definitely make the 4th Mainland bridge a reality in Lagos. This was contained in a new report we got earlier this week.
4th Mainland bridge will become a reality under Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu’s administration – Special Adviser
Engr. Mrs Aramide Adeyoye, the special adviser on Work & Infrastructure to Lagos state governor reassured Lagosians about the 4th Mainland bridge in her recent public statement during an online summit. According to NaN (News Agency of Nigeria), this online summit was organized by Dayo Isreal - the UN Youth Ambassador in compliance with social distancing rules. During the online meeting, Mrs Adeyoye reportedly said that Governor Sanwo-Olu’s administration opened a bid for the 4th Mainland bridge last December, got 31 responses and will soon reveal the details of the selected bidder to the public.
Mrs Adeyoye expressed her excitement and optimism towards the possible success of the 4th Mainland bridge under the current administration. She also stressed in her public statement that the project might not necessarily be completed during this first 4-years tenure of Governor Babjide Sanwo-Olu but, she is well confident that major progress will be achieved. Anyone familiar with some facts about the 3rd Mainland bridge will probably agree with Mrs Adeyoye that such a project isn’t one that can be rushed and achieved so quickly. However, the seriousness of the state government about the project goes a long way in assuring the public that such a huge project like the 4th Mainland Bridge could be a success anytime soon.
The current 3rd Mainland bridge used to be the longest bridge in Africa up until 1996
Going by the words of Mrs Adeyoye and the recent efforts of Governor Babjide Sanwo-Olu, we are very optimistic about the possible success of the 4th Mainland bridge which will greatly improve road transport within Lagos state.
