A statement from the White House lists other members of the delegation as David Greene, Chargé d’Affaires, a.i., U.S. Embassy Abuja, Sydney Kamlager-Dove, United States Representative, among others.
In the intervening period, President Muhammadu Buhari is set to commission the second Niger Bridge having completed it within the lifespan of his eight years administration.
Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina says Buhari will officially open the bridge to motorists today.
The presidency notes that the decision to construct the second Niger Bridge was conceptualized in 2005.

Going down memory lane, Buhari’s media aide said in 2014, there was an attempt to begin the project through Public Private Partnership, PPP, but it was not successful.
