Councilor Onem Tyna Miracle in an interview with BBC News Pidgin expressed joy over the infrastructural work.

Miracle said before the construction of the bridge, people belittled her as one who couldn't bring about any development but now, the story is different.

The real truth about how Miracle bridge came to be

30-year-old Miracle narrated how it all started, noting she watched with concern how women and old men suffered accidents on what was a 'monkey walkway' before.

The councilor had thought within herself that she was going to work on it when the opportunity presented itself.

When the state government gave money for ward projects, she used hers for that purpose, including her N2.5 million car allowance.

Mixed reactions have trailed the video.

@cookingwithseki said:

"In all honesty Nigerians abi UARIANS are not hard to please . See something as basic as a bridge bringing this much joy and smile on faces."
