Abuja, the capital of Nigeria, is located in the central part of the country.
It is really a very young capital even for African standards: the plans to move the capital from Lagos were approved in 1976, the construction was carried on throughout the 1980s.
In 1991 Abuja became Nigeria's capital.
It is a modern, but attractive city with many interesting buildings and villas dotting the landscape.
In few years Abuja has become the heart of Nigeria’s diplomatic activity.
Abuja is located in a very strategic position for visiting all the different parts of the country.

Good and accesible road network, excellent infrastructural fascilities and above all, well secured and peaceful habour for tourism and business investment. Treasures wide range of opportunities... more and highly hospitable to wide range of citizens and foreign guests.

Overall Guide : Abuja is a pleasurable city to behold. Most importantly, the shopping malls are many and strategically located. The only problem is that the roads are not well labelled, making it difficult for a new comer to find his or her... more ways. There are too many cross roads which facilitate accidents. Transportation is generally cheap in Abuja.

Overall rating 7
Overall Guide : Too much concentration of all business activities at the Central Area. Statellite towns are developed at a very slow rate. Rent in Abuja is killing. However, this can be sorted if more statellite cities are developed an made liveable More later.
