In statement by Tolu Ogunlesi the special aide to the President on media and new digital on Twitter where he said the station will now be called Goodluck Jonathan railway station.
The station which is constructed under the present administration by the Minister of Transport, Rotimi Amaechi.
The rail station comprises of Ajaokuta- Itakpe- Warri railways.The station will be completed soon and start operation.
Goodluck Jonathan was the immediate President of Nigeria, he was the one defeated by Buhari to ascend office and was praised for his patriotism even by Buhari for handling the post peacefully. He even congratulated the winner which happen to be the first time such would happen in the history of Nigeria.
I think Buhari has done this to show he appreciate the man for his Goodwill's for the democracy of the country and to honour him as a former president of the country.
