Goni stated this on Friday during the ongoing inspection of projects being executed by the commission in Madagali Local Government Area of Adamawa.

He said that the bridge was about to collapse and, if allowed to collapse, would cut off the road liking the two states.

The D-G also expressed satisfaction with the quality of the ongoing and completed projects so far visited in Yola, Hong and Madagali LGAs.

Goni said the aim of the inspection was to ascertain and review the progress of work achieved so far.

Prof. Benson Baha, Provost, Adamawa College of Education (CEO), Hong, appreciated NEDC for the construction of access road to the college.
