Amaechi described the Agbor Station Complex as the largest station and operational hub of the Itakpe-Warri line.

“Today, we continued test-run of our new coaches on the completed Itakpe-Warri standard gauge rail line.

“We’ve named the largest station on this route – the Agbor railway facility and station after former President Goodluck Jonathan,” Amaechi tweeted.

The station, according to the minister, will now be known as Goodluck Jonathan Railway Station and Complex.
