Against trending rumours, the Federal Government has announced that the third Mainland bridge is in perfect condition.
The Director Press and Public Relations, Federal Ministry of Works and Housing, Mrs. Boade Akinola made the announcement on Monday, November 8, 2021.
TheFact Nigeria gathered that rumours of noticed faults on the Third mainland bridge started flying after the Ikoyi building collapse in Lagos State last week.
According to the statement, the Federal Controller of Works in Lagos, Engineer Olukayode Popoola who gave on-the-spot report on the Bridge, said he drove along the Bridge without noticing any opening or experiencing any shaking as contained in the social media report.
The controller debunked insinuations making the rounds in the social media that the Third Mainland Bridge in Lagos had “opened up” and “shaking” and, therefore, unsafe to traffic saying the claim was both false and unfounded.
He therefore advised members of the public, especially commuters, to ignore the insinuations as the Bridge, which was receiving regular attention along with other bridges across the country was safe for use.
