The transporters are appealing that the federal government move quickly to complete the new ones, which have been under construction for more than 5 years.

The Moro and Ohan bridges, also known as Bailey bridges, were built along the Kwara-Oyo-Benin Republic border during the colonial era.

Motorists are now forced to find an alternative routes.

The federal government awarded the construction of the new Moro bridge in 2017. It was supposed to be finished in 2018, but the contractor requested a contract review.
