Welcome to Abuja Google Map
Abuja is the capital of Nigeria in West Africa , Africa's most populous nation. Just under 800 ,000 people live in Abuja (less than a tenth that live in Lagos , the old capital). Abuja is a planned city , it became Nigeria's capital city in 1991 and it's situated in the center of the country. Many developing nations have planned capital cities situated in the geographic center in order to maintain some political neutrality as well as create an economic base in a previously underdeveloped part of the country. Abuja was constructed during the 1980's. The downtown area is planned out and mostly completed. Multinationals have their headquarters here , embassies are based here , there's a mosque , church and a large national assembly. The outskirts of town are still somewhat of a mess with little in the way of modern conveniences such as electricity and running water. Shanty towns are growing in number as the rural population is drawn to the city in search of jobs.

As at now , the Federal Capital City (FCC) is planned to cover an area of about 250 sq. kms , while the rest of the Territory of the city region covers about 7 ,750 sq. kms. The entire Territory itself was carved out from three states , namely , Niger State which contributed seventynine percent of the land area and seventyone percent of the indigenous population , Nassarawa State which contributed sixteen percent and twentyone percent respectively , and Kogi State which made a contribution of five percent and eight percent respectively. Until the creation of the FCT , the area was among the least developed in the country , lacking any form of developmental amenity and infra structure. Things are now changing at a pace hardly matched by any other part of the country.
