The House of Representatives has mandated the Federal Ministry of Works and the Federal Road Maintenance Agency (FERMA) to undertake urgent repairs and maintenance of the Oghara – Mosogar Bridge to forestall imminent collapse.

The motion Was unanimously adopted by the House and referred to the Committee
The Oghara – Mosogar Bridge is situated at Ethiope West Local Government Area of Delta State, is the major road from the Benin – Oghara – Sapele – Warri axis linking to the popular East – West Road from Warri. It is an iconic link between Oghara – Benin, Mosogar – Warri, Asaba and even Lagos.
The present state of the Oghara – Mosogar Bridge is one that requires urgent attention as the bridge has visibly seen cracks and structural damages including the expansion of joints on the Bridge.
