Anyone moving to Abuja, Nigeria, must be aware of the high cost of living in the city. The cost of accommodation is high, but on the bright side, there is a wide variety of relatively cheap food and an endless supply of fruits. The weather is quite bright and beautiful, although the rainy season tends to come with a lot of wind, therefore one must be careful to get a well-built apartment, to avoid concerns when the rains come.

Abuja is really hot, so please, buy a lot of clothes made of light materials. Although the city is fun, it’s also quite expensive, so you would need to find a high-paying job if you want to enjoy life here. Accomodation is affordable, so don’t worry about that. I’m sure you’d adjust pretty well to the environment over here.

Regardless, Abuja is a beautiful city that I’m happy and proud to live in.

Christopher, says: 2020

An individual moving here should know the exorbitant lifestyle and mannerism of the city. despite the high cost of living, Abuja is fun to live in as there are umpteen mind-blowing places and events available in the city (e.g., Wonderland, Transcorp Hilton, Zuma Rock, etc.). There are also fascinating tourist attractions in the city that leaves an individual with a didactic impact. Among these are the Alex Ekwueme Art Gallery, Ladi Kwali Pottery Centre and the likes. Ultimately, a person wishing to live in Abuja should learn to mind his/her business as the hustle and bustle in the city leaves no one with a trivial moment. My final advisory message to the individual is and smart.

The city is the capital of Nigeria with a lot of political presence. Law enforcement is a very serious in the city therefore a resident must be law abiding. The city is the most expensive place in Nigeria. There city is governed by a minister under the direct supervision of the president.

Public transport system in Abuja comprises mainly of taxis and tricycles, Buses are few. Transport fare is quite cheap and there is rarely any traffic. Hausa language is a plus to learn and pidgin English is commonly spoken. The city has a relaxed atmosphere and a buzzing nightlife especially on the weekends.

Munachiso, says: 2020

Abuja is arguably the most expensive city in Nigeria. Thus, a crucial factor to consider before moving to Abuja is accommodation. This is especially so for unemployed individuals whose motivation for relocating to Abuja is to look for work. For such individuals, Abuja can quickly become a nightmare if they cannot guarantee themselves free accommodation (at a close friend’s or relative’s) in the city prior to their relocation. Many people who made the mistake of moving to Abuja without first enquiring about the cost of accommodation did not last long in the city. Therefore, it is imperative to make arrangements for accommodation before moving to Abuja.

Olanrewaju, says: 2020

Conducive environment and friendly weather. Good connecting road networks and easy to access shopping malls. Good internet services and perfect network connectivity. my city is a very religious city. We also observe public holidays and memorial days such as armed forces remembrance day, which comes up 1st January yearly and the country’s independence day, which is usually celebrated on October one yearly.

The Federal Capital Territory (FCT) is the capital of my country, Nigeria. It is a very well-developed and very well-planned city. It is also a very beautiful city with lovely weather. However, the cost of living in the capital is relatively high, so if you do not have a stable source of income, I would not recommend moving to the FCT.

In moving here, you have to be sure that the process altogether doesn’t put you at any financial risk. This is in no small part due to the high costs of housing and almost extortionate maintenance fees and taxes. Although, living in my city has been linked with higher levels of productivity as it’s the modernized hub of commerce in my country.

Someone moving to Abuja should know the cost of transportation is higher here than the cost of transportation in smaller cities like Calabar. This is due to that cabs in Abuja take advantage of newcomers lack of familiarity with the environment. With time, transportation costs become less of an issue, as you get acclimatized with the city.

Abuja is an amazing place with nice people, restaurants, malls, schools and churches. There is constant power supply. It also has good tourist attractions. To anyone moving to Abuja, you can come because you will be warmly welcomed. It is a great place.

Ogechi, says: 2020

Someone moving to Abuja should consider finding a place to stay in close proximity to his daily activities within the city, the cost of feeding himself and transportation.

Secondly, the city has good commercial roads that is, movement from one place to another is with ease. Finally, It’s a city that has provided and standard social amenities such as; standard electricity supply e.t.c.

Okechukwu, says: 2020

Ephraim, says: 2020

Abuja is a large and diverse city, with some parts of it being quite rural and other parts being very urban. Also, it is the country’s administrative capital. The cost of renting an apartment here, as in most places, is greatly influenced by how close it is to the “town”.

Abuja is a fast growing city, it has a lot of opportunities to offer be it business, employment, lifestyle etc. Abuja has a mixture of both hot and cold weather but mostly hot with a lasting rainy season. It has green spaces, excellent restaurant, luxury hotels cinemas etc. If you are looking for a good mixture of western and local lifestyle you will find it here, I’ll like to say that Abuja has a mixture of everything. Moving in to Abuja can be stressful especially moving in for the first time, but the good news is, as long as you are aware of a few things and make adequate preparations, you will have a great time moving in and exploring this lovely city.

There is the climate change. Most people are not used to the extreme climate conditions we face here. The environment is really different, and where I live is so quiet. There is nature blending with civilization, peace and quiet to an extent, water and electricity. Life can take any dimension here, and it is never really predictable.

Oluwafolakemi, says: 2020

Abuja, also known as the Federal Capital Territory of Nigeria, is essentially the seat of power of my country (formerly Lagos). It’s a beautiful city with an eclectic array of cultures, you could call it the New York of Nigeria. There’s more than a couple words to say about the standard of living though, not for the average man.

Rosemary, says: 2020

Abuja is a beautiful city, filled with interesting people. The mindset of an average Nigerian in relation to Abuja is that it is filled with rich but dishonest people. That is simple untrue. Abuja like so many Nigerian cities, face a lot of negative stereotypes for simply being in Nigeria.

The Central Park, Silverbird Galleria and Magicland are top places you would want to visit. In this wonderful city, there is everything for everyone and you won’t experience any dull moment.

Annabelle, says: 2020

The cost of living is high. The person should also be aware that the city is clean and among all, the person should know the city is the capital of the federal republic of Nigeria which currently are facing some political and economical challenges.

Celestine, says: 2020

There might not be much to do here, but spending time with family is a major plus. The weddings here are a big deal, and for good reason–I’ve created some unforgettable memories at 10 pm on the dance floor. I highly recommend having a car as well because it really feels like Abuja is a spaghetti bowl of highways sometimes.

If you’re considering moving to Abuja, it has just one major mall. This can be off putting to some, as a major city having just one mall can make it look as though the city is boring. In spite of this though, Abuja has a lot of places to get good food.

Gushim, says: 2020

My city is a beautiful city with many tourist attractions, houses and amazing sites. It is a place anyone would like to live in.

The standard of living in the city of Abuja, Nigeria, is quite high. In comparison to other states in the country and as the capital, it has the highest standard of living. Therefore, the residents do not expect to obtain foodstuffs and other basic necessities at the same price as states such as Oyo, Lagos, and the rest of them.

It is a safe place with minimum traffic. Lots of restaurants with great food and schools near each district. Housing allowance is quite pricey and you need to have a job to survive the daily hassle. Electricity is not available 24/7 in most places but the city is mostly filled with nice people.

Living in Abuja is not easy for workers, the need to get to work in time despite the terrible traffic. I advise workers to always set an alarm so as to enable them rise early so as to beat this heavy traffic. It’s a safe city to stay though seeing as the president resides here.

Abuja is a culturally dynamic city. The dominant language is hausa.it’s quite expensive to live in and life moves very fast. We have one pretty good roads and nice estates but, like anywhere else, we have slums and dirt roads riddled with potholes. Life can be simple or complicated depending on your lifestyle.
