On Saturday Mr. Rotimi Amaechi, the Minister of Transportation made the announcement on Mr. President’s behalf saying that the ministries have started to test run the coaches that have just been completed and are meant to ply Itakpe – Warri rail line.
However. President Buhari has named the largest station on this route – the Agbor Railway facility and station after former President Goodluck Jonathan.
Buhari’s decision is based on how impressed he is at Goodluck Jonathan’s peaceful nature in which he handed over power to him in 2015 after he was declared the winner of the March 28,2015 presidential election by INEC.
