Railway Stations: Amaechi Promises More Beneficiaries
Nigeria’s Minister of Transportation, Mr Rotimi Amaechi says more prominent Nigerians will benefit from the Government’s naming of railway stations across the country.
Mr Amaechi said ”a bigger railway station would be named after the late Alhaji Waziri Mohammed.”
Mr Amaechi stated this while responding to the demand by the Nigerian Union of Railway Workers (NUR) to reverse the naming of the Apapa Railway Station.
The General Secretary of the Union, Comrade Segun Esan has demanded the immediate reversal of the naming of the Apapa Railway station from Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu Railway Station to Alhaji Waziri Mohammed, who until his death was the Chairman of Nigerian Railway Board.
He said it would be proper to name the Apapa station after Alhaji Waziri who died while in active service as a mark of his sterling contributions to nation building.
