Numan Bridge in Bad Shape

Yesterday, I was at the Numan bridge with my camera taking shots, all of a sudden, a car passed and I noticed the way the bridge was vibrating, then Keke Napep passed, I noticed the same thing which was not quite usual. This is a bridge that was constructed far back as 1975 – 1976, about 43 – 44 years back; it was built by Rokon Construction Company Limited then. Ever since the bridge was built, no major maintenance has taken place there and the sight is horrible, the rails are pulling and breaking, the slabs are rotten. It was such a scary sight to behold! It took courage to walk on the foot path on the bridge. It was this that prompted me to write this article to call on the government to as a matter of urgency takes the necessary steps to forestall the impending disaster that is waiting to happen.

The Numan Bridge is a major bridge, one of the biggest in the state (Adamawa) that links the state with other parts of the country. Losing this bridge will cause untold hardships to so many people and will alienate the state totally from the other parts of the country. This is a clarion call therefore to the relevant authorities to do the needful in order to run the necessary maintenance of this bridge in order to strengthen and reinforce it. This is a bridge that houses the River Benue which flows from Lagdo Dam and River Gongola, down to other parts of the country. My call therefore is for the state government to partner with the Federal Government of Nigeria to kindly look into this issue with a view to curb and stop the impending doom that is about to happen in the area. As a matter of urgency, this need to be attended to; so I am calling on the government – State or Federal to look into this issue critically and fix the problem which I believe the government has the capacity to do that.

    I suspect how the clue to this particular thinking lay behind the tattoo right across his
