Believe it or not, the Federal Government of Nigeria recently completed a ₦14.9 billion bridge that now connects Cross River State directly to the neighbouring West-African country, Cameroon. Media reports claim that the newly completed bridge is 1.5km in length and it comprises a standard 2-lane road that offers a smooth driving experience between Nigeria and the Republic of Cameroon.

According to media sources, this newly completed bridge cost the Federal Government of Nigeria a whopping ₦14.9 billion ($38 million) to construct. Reports claim that the beautiful bridge actually starts from the popular Mfum town in Etung LGA of Cross River State and it extends all the way to Ekok in the Republic of Cameroon.
So, this is the reason why it is now referred to as the new “Nigeria-Cameroon Joint Border Bridge”. And just as you might already expect, the new bridge has a massive gate that is installed in the middle because it is simply an international border between two different sovereign nations.

Several media sources claim that the new bridge is already being guarded by adequate security forces as it is a land border between Nigeria and Cameroon. Nonetheless, it is yet to be commissioned officially by the Federal Government. You can be assured that we will definitely be among the first to post more photos and updates when this bridge finally gets commissioned.
