The Federal Government of Nigeria has revealed why the name of former President Nigeria, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo was missing among the prominent Nigerians who got railway stations named after them.

Naija News had reported earlier that President Buhari on Monday approved the renaming of several train stations after many “prominent Nigerians”.

The development was disclosed in a statement released by the Ministry of Transportation.

According to the statement, the “deserving citizens have contributed to the progress and development of their respective communities and the nation at large.”

However, Bashir Ahmed, the Personal Assistant on New Media to the presidency, via his official twitter handle explained why President Muhammadu Buhari took the drastic decision despite admitting that the current administration was implementing the master plan introduced by former President Olusegun Obasanjo for the development of Nigeria’s railway transport system.

Bashir Ahmed stated that

In my opinion, this “Former President Olusegun Obasanjo’s name was missing as President Buhari named key railway stations after prominent Nigerians” shouldn’t be a big deal, Chief Obasanjo has many things named after him, including one of the popular roads in my State, Kano.
