It was reported Saturday that president Buhari approved the name of the railway station to be called the Goodluck Jonathan Railway Station and Complex.

Jonathan, in an interview with State House correspondents on Tuesday shortly after meeting Buhari behind closed doors at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, described the naming of Warri-Itakpe rail station after him as a good gesture by the President.

Their meeting centred on the crisis in Mali and efforts aimed at restoring peace in the country.

But when asked to speak on his relationship with the President, Jonathan said, “You have been seeing me coming to see the President and you have been seeing us having friendly conversation. So, our relationship is okay.”
