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

He disclosed this during his address at the inauguration of the road on Saturday, June 8.

Though, this was contained in a post shared by Special Assistant to President Tinubu on Social Media, Mr 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.”

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).

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

However, 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.
