The Ijaw Leader, Chief Edwin Clark has described, the naming of one of the rail stations after Chief Obafemi Awolowo and former President Goodluck Jonathan as insulting
Clark said Jonathan as a former president and Chief Awolowo deserved more than that.
He said clamping together people who have not made any meaningful marks in the country’s development alongside great men like Awolowo and Jonathan is not acceptable. He, therefore, called on President Muhammadu Buhari to withdraw the honour.
The Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, had disclosed recently that the president approved the name of the railway station in Agbor, Delta State, be called Goodluck Jonathan Railway Station and Complex
President Jonathan accepted the gesture and also thanked Buhari.
But Clark however said his people saw the gesture as degrading, especially when it has to be shared with such a caliber of people listed alongside him.
