President Muhammadu Buhari has approved the naming of the Railway Complex in Agbor, the operational hub of Itakpe-Warri Rail Line after former President Goodluck Jonathan.

Special Adviser to the President on Digital Media, Tolu Ogunlesi made this known via his twitter handle.

This announcement was initially made by the Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi.

The operational hub of Itakpe-Warri Rail Line will now be known as the Goodluck Jonathan Railway Station and Complex.

The Itakpe-Ajaokuta-Warri rail line has a length of 276 km and links Warri in Delta State to Ajaokuta in Kogi State.

The rail service has 12 stations with two located between Itakpe, Ajaokuta and Warri including;  Itakpe; Eganiy; Adobe; Itogbo; Agenebode; Uromi; Egehen; Igbanke; Agbor; Abraka; Okpara and Ujewu stations.

The line, which was started in 1987, was built to move iron ore from mines around Itakpe to the steelworks at Ajaokuta but was abandoned for many years before construction resumed during Buhari’s first term in office.
