President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has named the Arterial Road N20 from Northern Parkway to Outer Northern Expressway, ONEX as Professor Wole Soyinka Highway.

Special Adviser to the President on Information and Strategy, Bayo Onanuga, disclosed this in a statement via X on Tuesday.

According to him, the decision was due to Prof Soyinka’s contribution to African literature being the first to win the Nobel Literature Prize in Nigeria.

He furthered that the decision was recommended by the Nyesom Wike-led Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Administration.
