“I will again assure the people of the southeast that we are investing in infrastructure projects that are of critical importance to the region: the Second Niger Bridge, the East-West Road, the Coastal Rail, power projects – these and more will benefit the region and unlock economic potential.
“We are collaborating with the Chinese government to deliver these projects, and have taken very seriously our counterpart funding obligations.
