In line with its desire to transform the Niger Delta region, the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) says it has opened an ultra-modern footbridge along the busy Aba Road in Port Harcourt, Rivers State.
The bridge, which is now a new landmark in the capital city, is a tube linking the corporate headquarters of the commission to its equally modern car park for staff and visitors.
Performing the ceremony of opening the footbridge for use, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of the commission, Bassey Dan-Abia, said the safety of staff and visitors to the NDDC headquarters was a paramount consideration in putting up the structure.
“It is part of our efforts to provide a safe working environment for our staff and make sure that none of them is exposed to unnecessary risk,” he said.
“This is a very magnificent footbridge. It is also technically and aesthetically very good. We are going to provide 24-hour security for it to ensure that it will be safe at all times. For now, it will be restricted to NDDC staff until we finish test-running the facility,” Dan-Abia said.
The NDDC Executive Director Projects, Tuoyo Omatsuli, gave assurances that the foot-bridge would be very well maintained, noting that all the facilities such as the lighting and air conditioning would be kept at tip-top shape. He described the foot-bridge as the first of its kind in the South-South region. “The design is unique and on entering the bridge, you will think that you are stepping into a rail station in Europe of America,” he said.
