Sharing is caring!

Maitama Extension District in Abuja has been renamed Goodluck Jonathan District by the Minister of The Federal Capital Territory, Senator Bala Mohammed.

Senator Mohammed renamed the District at the opening ceremony of the three additional new districts, which he disclosed will gulp N104.2 billion in infrastructure as he maintained it is necessary to name one of the district after President Jonathan since none had been named after any Nigeria leader in the past.

Speaking at the ceremony, Mohammed said “May I suggest to the Executive Secretary of FCDA, who has the Abuja Master Plan and the Coordinator of Abuja Metropolitan Management Council to rename this place as Goodluck Jonathan District.

“This is because we have not named any district after any president in the past. The  president I know is President Goodluck Jonathan and the president I know that is bringing good luck to me and to Nigerians is President Goodluck Jonathan.

“Therefore, by the powers conferred on me, I change the name of this district to Goodluck Jonathan District,” he said.
