Jonathan Commends Buhari for Completing Agbor Railway Station

Former President Goodluck Jonathan, has commended President Mohammadu Buhari for the completion and naming of the railway station in Agbor, Delta State, after him.

Jonathan, in an interview with State House correspondents on Tuesday shortly after meeting Buhari behind closed doors at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, described the naming of Warri-Itakpe rail station after him as a good gesture by the President.

The former president also disclosed that his relationship with the President Muhammadu Buhari “is okay.”

Buhari had on Saturday approved that the name of the railway station be called the Goodluck Jonathan Railway Station and Complex.

Their meeting centred on the crisis in Mali and efforts aimed at restoring peace in the country.

But when asked to speak on his relationship with the President, Jonathan said, “You have been seeing me coming to see the President and you have been seeing us having friendly conversation. So, our relationship is okay.”

Jonathan added, “Let me use this opportunity to commend Mr President publicly. I have already sent a letter to him appreciating the good gesture.

“Completing the railway programme is good. It shows that the President is going on with the legacy projects of previous administrations, and that is the way to go.

“So, I sent a letter to him. I have commended him verbally too. I appreciate it, I thank Mr President, the Minister of Transportation and others that made it possible.”
