Historical Background

Lagos, the traditional capital of the Federal republic of Nigeria faced some real and perceived challenges as the capital of Nigeria. Some of these include inadequate land for expansion, urban congestion, non-centrality, proximity to the sea and its security consequences.

In August 1975, the General Murtala Mohammed led military government set up a seven-man panel headed by Dr. Akinola Aguda to review the suitability of Lagos as the federal capital and to make recommendations of new location if otherwise.The Dr Aguda led panel recommended that the federal capital be relocated to a new location, Abuja. The recommendation was accepted by the federal government.

On February 5th 1976 the General Murtala led government through Decree No. 6 of 1976 created the new federal capital of Nigeria. The Federal government commenced the development of the territory and on the 12th of December 1991, the General Ibrahim Babangida led military government officially moved the seat of government to Abuja. Prior to becoming the federal capital, the area was a relatively quiet settlement of mainly farmers.
