All that was just expected is for Hon. Uko Nkole to take Engineers to the bridge to determine the cost and forward same to him so that work will commence immediately.
This directive from the Governor was in response to the passionate appeal made to the Governor by the Prelate and Moderator of the Presbyterian Church of Nigeria, His Eminence, Most Rev Dr Nzie Nsi Eke, to help fix the bridge as the best way to honour late Chief Emmanuel Nkole who was a great Father, Community Leader and Patriarch and who also lived a worthy and exemplary life on earth.
