Nigerians mock Obasanjo after snubbed in train stations’ honour roll

 

 

 

 

 

 
Former Nigerian President Olusegun Obasanjo has been the butt of jokes on Twitter after President 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”.

After former President Goodluck Jonathan was honoured with Agbor Station Complex last week, an expanded list of honorees included, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, Prof Wole Soyinka, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, Dr Olusola Saraki,Mobolaji Johnson, Babatunde Fashola, Lateef Jakande, Funmilayo Ransome-Kuti, Chief Segun Osoba and Chief Micheal Ibru.

Others are: Chief Ladoka Akintola, Obafemi Awolowo, Alex Ekwueme, Adamu Attah, Augustus Aikhomu , George Innih, Anthony Enahoro, Tom Ikimi, Samuel Ogbemudia, David Ejoor, Alfred Rewane and Admiral Mike Akhigbe.

Missing on the list was former President Olusegun Obasanjo.

In many comments, Twitter Nigeria wondered why Obasanjo was left out, especially since the operative phrase for the honours was: those “who have contributed to the progress and development of their respective communities and the nation at large”.

Read some of the comments:

Bashir Ahmad, however cautioned that people should not make a fuss over Obasanjo’s omission on the honours list: “In my opinion, this “Former President Olusegun Obasanjo’s name was missing as President Buhari named key railway stations after prominent Nigerians” shouldn’t be a big deal, Chief Obasanjo has many things named after him, including one of the popular roads in my State, Kano”.
