Buhari approves naming railway station after Jonathan

President Muhammadu Buhari has sanctioned the naming of the railway station in Agbor, Delta State, after immediate past president, Goodluck Jonathan.

Transportation Minister Rotimi Amaechi made the announcement in Agbor during a test run ride of the Warri-Itakpe rail track.

The Goodluck Jonathan Railway Station and Complex is the operational hub of the 276km Warri-Itakpe rail line.

Meanwhile, Amaechi also told reporters that commuters on the Abuja-Kaduna rail line would have to wait for some time more for the service to resume.

He attributed this decision to non compliance with social distancing and other guidelines intended to mitigate the spread of the Covid-19 disease.

“It is worse when you have to deal with 4,000 passengers a day between Kaduna and Abuja,” he added.

The minister said that when the service eventually resumes, the number of passengers per coach would be reduced from 88 to 40 passengers in compliance with the social distancing protocols.
