Abuja is widely known as the capital of Nigeria, the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), and one of the wealthiest urban areas in Africa.

The city rose to national prominence when there was a need to shift the status of the capital city as Lagos didn’t have the required potential that befits that status.

In 1979, a master plan was created by urban city planners and approved by the Nigerian government for Abuja to be developed in five phases. This plan was necessary for the ease and coordination of developmental efforts.
