JUST IN: President Tinubu Names Abuja Road After Chinua Achebe [VIDEO]

President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has commissioned the M18 road infrastructure in the Guzape District of Abuja, naming it after the late Professor Chinua Achebe.

Achebe was a renowned Nigerian novelist, poet, and critic.

Achebe, who passed away in 2013, is celebrated for his seminal work, “Things Fall Apart” (1958), which remains the most widely studied, translated, and read African novel. His “African Trilogy” includes “No Longer at Ease” (1960) and “Arrow of God” (1964).

A video of the commissioning was shared by the special adviser to the president on Social media, Dada Olusegun.

The development follows President Tinubu’s recent naming of the Northern Parkway road in Abuja after another Nigerian literary icon, Wole Soyinka.

These gestures are part of the commissioning of various projects in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) to mark the president’s one year in office.
