5 Reasons Buhari May Have Omitted Obasanjo’s Name In Train Station Honour Role by ijustdey: 2:47pm On Jul 28
Following the announcement of the names of prominent Nigerians named after railway stations across the country, former Nigerian President Olusegun Obasanjo has been the source of debate on social after Buhari failed to name any of the new train stations in his honour.

According to a statement by the Minister of Transportation, Buhari named the train stations after some deserving Nigerians “who have contributed to the progress and development of their respective communities and the nation at large”. Missing on the list was former President Olusegun Obasanjo.

Here are five reasons, Buhari may have omitted Obasanjo’s name;


1 Obasanjo Has Monuments Named After Him Already

Obasanjo has monuments named after him like National Open University of Nigeria research centre, a major road in Kano state, Kalambo Station in DR Congo etc


2 Obasanjo Is A Major Critic Of Buhari

Buhari and Obasanjo have always been at loggerheads since 2018, following a statement made by Buhari insinuating that Obasanjo wasted $16 billion on power projects. This has given rise to altercations between the incumbent President and the former President.


3. There Are Other Projects Ongoing In The Country

We can never can tell, the ongoing Lagos Ibadan expressway construction may be named after the former President. This may just be a case of reserving the best for last.


4. Could Buhari Be Trying To Spite Obasanjo?

It is no news, the feud between Prof. Wole Soyinka and Obasanjo. Recall that the Nobel Laureate in 2019 called Obasanjo the Nation’s biggest hypocrite. Prof. Wole Soyinka’s name made the list of train station’s renamed and Obasanjo’s name didn’t.


5. Obasanjo’s Insensitivity

The current administration has been met with several backlash from the former President. In 2019, Obasanjo opposed the reelection of Buhari accusing the president of poor handling of the economy, among others.

Obasanjo should go and sit down.
Expecting this current administration to name a nation monument after a foremost critic like OBJ is a dream that will never come true.

What is the Profiit or Gain in Having a Monument in your Name?

We Just love to worry over Nonessentials...

Eternal things we Should lay Emphasis on, we don't!

If you Name the CBN office or Aso Rock Villa after the late Isa Funta, will it bring Him back to Life or alter his Eternal abode?

If Buhari himself remain alive for another 20 years, he shall face more humiliation greedy obj is experiencing...A leader like Obasanjo should have birthday celebrated by google, his name should be in history books in Africa schools and around the world maybe,but instead they chose to be very unfortunate, no recognition pass Ota after being president of biggest black nation in the world...OBJ could have turned Nigeria to Dubia in 1999 when he got in,we got all its takes then....Everything I say,even what dubia never had like us MANPOWER

I want to believe that he will still name another station after former Pres Obasanjo. The railway project still on going although am not a fan of Pres Buhari but I believe his adviser will advise him right on this one.

Olusegun Obasanjo is bigger than railway station na, he should be named after Airport, Seaport, University,Bridge etc. Baba is not in the category of the people honored with the railway stations.

Obj and many of the politicians don't deserve any public infrastructure named after them... Those structures were built with our collective wealth... It's stupid plastering the name of one crook who likely stole from the country on it.


When this country is reborn, those names will be expunged.
