This is quite unnecessary. The stations are better named after the towns hosting them. Everything shouldn't be about politics.

Black people na wa o. A majority of those names are very uninspiring. These politicians are always in a hurry to physically crest their names on monuments, when in reality their names reminds Nigerians of those who contributed to the country's backwardness.

Does not matter. Tinubu is already sinking, naming a rail station after him is a way of making it appear he is being neutral

Wow what a great honour to Osibanjo, Tinubu, Fashola, Jonathan et al.

This is symbolic of the flourishing relationship between the Presidency & the Tinubu camp in the APC.

A telling indicator of how 2023 politics will shape out.

Congratulations!

Welcome development. We await more modern development. I really wish and hope our president does something about the incessant insecurity in this country. If he does, he would get more of my respect. All lives must be treated with respect and utmost sanctity. May God assist him. Aameen

But when he named the other one in warri or so after Jonathan you didn't make this statement.

Kudos to Buhari, at least I could see names like Soyinka, osinbanjo, jakande, Ransome Kuti and our amiable gba gba Chief Obafemi Awolowo A.K.A Asiwaju of Yoruba Land

I hate seeing that Traitor Akintola and the looter that looted kwara state dry with little or no project, Olushola Saraki.
Before you quote me, make sure you have been to kwara state before.
All Sarakis could offer Is the stupid bridge at challenge, general hospital or so.

What exactly will satisfy you? Had it been it was otherwise you would still have complained. Why not get a life and stop hating this man. We shouldn't be too blinded to laud when it is necessary and criticize appropriately when most expected!

You always have erection whenever you hear or see Tinubu's name, why attacking him? He is not the only person on the list.

Because the SE Senate caucus was fighting Amaechi and wanted to sabotage him, they asked Saraki not to allow Amaechi amend budget. The amendment was to include Lagos Calabar rail. The sections to run through Igboland were in that budget. When Saraki cut that budget, I remember Ipobs rejoicing on Nairaland. They did not know their generations would pay for that stupidity.

Today, Saraki is out, Lagos Ibadan Expressway is ongoing, Amaechi is back, Fashola is back, but the stupidity of those SE senators in 2016 is still haunting them. Look at them asking foolish questions on this thread. Playing politics like idiots since 1960.

See this one. Not even a dog had been named after your own father.

The New Niger bridge would be named Muhammadu Buhari Niger bridge. At least, every time you want to go to your village, you would bow before Buhari.

They share money and they share landmarks too. They should just sell this country and give me my share.

BTW, can you give your friend 10million Naira if you win 20 million Naira. Well, this man just did that
