Buhari Names Railway Project After Jonathan, Consolidates Efforts.

The Delta State government receives good news as the railway complex in Agbor has been named after Former President Goodluck Jonathan by President Muhammadu Buhari.

The news was revealed by the Minister of Transportation Rotimi Amaechi on saturday.

The railway complex in Agbor is the centre of operation which connects the Itakpe-Warri rail line. It is joined by Benin to Onitsha rail, among other segments of the country.

The rail line is part of the Lagos-Calabar coastal railway project, which cuts across most states in the south-east and south-south.

The project implemented by the China Civil Engineering Construction Company (CCECC) was initiated during Jonathan’s administration.

But in 2016, Amaechi signed a fresh mandate to commence construction of the project.

Buhari defeated Jonathan during the 2015 presidential election, setting a new record as the first candidate to defeat a sitting president in Nigeria.

Jonathan was president between 2010 and 2015.
