Achebe died in 2013 at the age of 83. He was a Nigerian novelist, poet, and critic who is regarded as one of the fathers of modern African literature.

Recall that on Tuesday, Tinubu named the inaugurated arterial road N20 from the northern parkway to the outer northern expressway (ONEX) in the nation’s capital after Wole Soyinka, a famous playwright.

Soyinka is the first African to win the Nobel Prize for literature.

Bayo Onanuga, special adviser to the President on Information and Strategy, had said the naming of the road after Soyinka was recommended by the FCT administration.
