The federal govt. has honoured Wole Soyinka, Olusola Saraki and Asiwaju  Bola Tinubu by naming railway stations in the south west after them.

In a statement by the Ministry of Transportation signed by the Ministry’s Director, Press and Public Relations, Eric Ojekwe, the Minister of Transportation Rotimi Amaechi said “They are deserving citizens who contributed to the progress and development of their communities and the nation at large”

According to the Ministry, the Minister stated, the Apapa station has been named after National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Asiwaju Bola Tinubu; the Abeokuta Station named after Noble Laureate, Prof. Wole Soyinka while the Ajaokuta Station was conferred on Olusola Saraki, the late father of former Senate President Bukola Saraki.

Apart from Wole Soyinka and Tinubu, Mobolaji Johnson  was also honoured (Ebute Metta Station); Babatunde Fashola (Agege Station); Lateef Jakande (Agbado Station); Yemi Osibanjo (Kajola Station); Funmilayo Ransome-Kuti (Papalanto Station); Segun Osoba (Olodo Station) and Micheal Ibru (Opera Station).

Others honoured are: Obafemi Awolowo (Ibadan Station); Ladoka Akintola (Omio-Adio Station); Alex Ekwueme (Operation Control Centre); Adamu Attah (Itakpe Station); Augustus Aikhomu (Itogbe station); George Innih (Agbenebode Station); Anthony Enahoro (Uromi Station) Tom Ikimi (Ekehen Station); Samuel Ogbemudia (Igbanke Station); David Ejoor (Abraka Station); Alfred Rewane (Ujevwu Station) and Mike Akhigbe (Railway Village Agbor).

According to our investigation no station was named after Chief Olusegun Obasanjo Ex-President of Nigeria.

Reports, however, indicate that President Buhari had approved railway station in Agbor Delta State be named Good Luck Jonathan Railway Station and complex.
