The General Secretary of the (NUR), Mr Segun Esan, demanded the immediate reversal of the naming of the Railway Station after Alhaji Waziri Mohammed who, according to him, was  until his death was the Chairman of Nigerian Railway Board.
According to Esan, it will be proper to name the Apapa Station after Mohammed, who died while in active service, as a mark of his sterling contributions to nation building.
While rejecting the call, Amaechi, in a statement by his Media Assistant, Mrs Taiye Elebiyo-Edeni, said the late Alhaji Waziri Mohammed would, however, be named after a bigger railway station.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the Minister recently named the Apapa Railway Station, “Sen. Bola Tinubu Railway Station.

Amaechi said: “We are naming a bigger station after Waziri Mohammed.”
