Minister of Transportation, Rt. Hon.Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi has said that he would name a bigger station after late Alhaji Waziri Kyari Mohammed, as the naming of stations after prominent Nigerians was still ongoing.
In a statement made available to Transport Day, the Minister made the disclosure through his Media Assistant, Mrs Taiye Elebiyo-Edeni in Abuja while responding to the demand by Nigerian Union of Railway Workers (NUR) to reverse the naming of the Apapa Railway station.
According to him, “We are naming a bigger station after Waziri Mohammed,” he said.
Earlier, 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 back to Alhaji Waziri Kyari 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.
