FG names M18 road in FCT after Chinua Achebe

President Bola Tinubu has named the M18 road infrastructure in Guzape District, Abuja, after renowned late novelist and poet, Chinua Achebe.

The President stated this during his address at the inauguration of the road in Abuja on Saturday, June 8 [today].

This was contained in a post by Special Assistant to President Tinubu on Social Media, Olusegun Dada.

He wrote: “President Bola Ahmed Tinubu commissions the M18 road infrastructure in Guzape District of Abuja. Names road after Nigerian Novelist and Poet, late Professor Chinua Achebe.”

This is coming a few days after also naming a road after Prof. Wole Soyinka in the Federal Capital Territory.

However, while Soyinka is alive to witness the national honour, Achebe’s is coming posthumously, as the revered novelist-poet died on March 21, 2013 in Boston, Massachusetts, USA, aged 83.
