Former Minister of Information, Chief Edwin Clark has said that the naming of the railway complex in Agbor, Delta State, after Goodluck Jonathan was an insult to the former President and the Ijaw nation.

He said a national monument would have been named after the former president.
Clark noted that Jonathan was the brain behind the resuscitation of rail transportation in Nigeria, particularly the Abuja to Kaduna rail project and believes his Kinsman deserves better, maintaining that the ex-President should be given a national honour for ceding power to the current administration in 2015.

He further added even if the ex-President accepted the honour “because he is a gentleman and will not want to complain to Buhari,” his kinsmen will not.

“Jonathan was the President of the whole nation. We don’t like anybody to make a mess of him,” he said.

He said if Jonathan and Awolowo had not been grouped with others, he would probably have accepted the honours.

“I’m using Ameachi to tell Mr. President that what he will not like to be done to him, he should not do it to others,” he said.


  1. Whether naming railway or other things in Jonathan’s name doesn’t change his honour but what will be after human being is what positive impacts you were able to make when were alive.
