Buhari names newly constructed Delta railway station after Jonathan

President Muhammadu Buhari has approved the naming of a railway station in Agbor, Delta State, after ex-president Goodluck Jonathan.

The Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, who disclosed this while inspecting the Warri-Itakpe Rail Line on Saturday, said the station would now be called Goodluck Jonathan Railway Station and Complex.

The minister added that railway fares would increase as a result of measures to halt the spread of COVID-19 when services begin on rail lines, especially on the Abuja-Kaduna line.
