This is the moment that Goodluck Jonathan arrived at the Presidential Villa in a luxury Mercedes.
His visit comes three days after Buhari named the recently completed railway complex in Agbor, Delta state, after him.
A short clip released captured the moment that the former president arrived at the Villa in a bulletproof Mercedes-Benz sedan.
His visit comes three days after Buhari named the recently completed railway complex in Agbor, Delta state, after Goodluck Jonathan.
Speaking to journalists after the meeting, Jonathan commended Buhari for naming the railway complex after him.
He described the move as a “good gesture”.
He added that :
“Let me use this opportunity to commend Mr President publicly. I have already sent a letter to him appreciating that it is a good gesture,”
“Completing the railway programme is good. It shows that the president is going on with the legacy projects of previous administrations and that is the way to go. I appreciate it and I thank Mr President.”
The line, which was started in 1987, was built to move iron ore from the mines around Itakpe to the steelworks at Ajaokuta, Kogi state.
The line was abandoned for many years before construction resumed during Buhari’s first term in office.
