In this article, we’ll look at the 6 things to do this Valentine In Abuja.
Abuja, a purpose-built capital city, is the second of the ten most populous cities in Nigeria after Lagos, with a population of about 6 million people as estimated in 2016.
Abuja is the capital city of Nigeria and is located right in its heart. The city was built in the 1980’s and became Nigeria’s official capital on the 12th of December, 1991. Although a metropolitan area, the city can be rather uninteresting and lonely sometimes. However, if you’re popping into Abuja sometime soon or perhaps you even live there, there are numerous fun places to go and exciting activities to catch up on.
