About Abuja

The land of Abuja was the southwestern part of the ancient kingdom of zazzau (Zaria). Abuja was derived from someone´s name, the full name being Abu Ja. “Abu” (shortened from “Abubakar”) and “ja”, a name given to him because he was light in complexion (“Ja” meaning red or fair in Hausa). Hence the name “Abu-Ja”, Abu the Fair one Abuja is dominated by one major tribe know as Gbagy. Abuja officially became Nigeria´s capital on 12 December 1991. Abuja is one of the wealthiest and most expensive city in Africa. The Aso rock in Abuja is a 400metres high monolith left by water erosion. The master plan for Abuja and the Federal Capital Territory was developed by IPA (international Planning Associates), a consortium made up of three American firms: Plannin Research Corporation; Wallace, McHarg, Roberts and Todd; and Archisystems, a division of the hughes Organization. A more detailed design on the central areas of the capital, particulary its monumental core, was accomplished by kenzo Tange, a renowned Japanese architect, along with his team of city planners at Kenzo Tange and Urtec Company
