Buhari’s media aide, Tolu Ogunlesi, and Minister of Transportation Rotimi Amaechi announced this on Saturday.
The rail line is part of the Lagos-Calabar coastal railway project, which cuts across most states in the south-east and south-south.
The project implemented by the China Civil Engineering Construction Company (CCECC) was initiated during Jonathan’s administration.
But in 2016, Amaechi signed a fresh mandate to commence construction of the project.
Buhari defeated Jonathan during the 2015 presidential election, setting a new record as the first candidate to defeat a sitting president in Nigeria.
BREAKING | President @MBuhari has approved the naming of the Railway Complex in Agbor – the operational hub of #ItakpeWarriRail Line – after former President @GEJonathan. It will be known as the Goodluck Jonathan Railway Station & Complex — Minister of Transport, @ChibuikeAmaechi
