PANDEF Derides Naming of Railway Station After Former President Jonathan

PAN- Niger Delta Forum, PANDEF, mouthpiece of the people of South-South zone, last night,    described the naming of a Railway Station after former President Goodluck Jonathan by President Muhammadu  Buhari administration as”meaningless and belittling to the person and status of the former president.”

National Publicity Secretary of PANDEF, Hon Ken Robinson, in a statement, said: ” It is even worse that after the supposed honour, the government went ahead to name several other stations after other Nigerians.

“Though understandable that all those the various railway stations are named after, are prominent and deserving Nigerians. However, if the gesture was truly a honour done to Goodluck Jonathan, then there would have been no reason, naming several other stations after numerous other persons.
