Kubwa Abuja

Neighborhood overview

Kubwa is an affordable suburb, that occupies a strategic location in the Federal Capital Territory Nigeria (FCT). It is located to the north west of the Federal Capital City (FCC) Abuja.

The Kubwa neighborhood is administered by the Bwari Area Council (BAC), one of the 6 area councils in the FCT.

The increasing population of the district has created demand for more goods and services. A mixture of banks, shops, markets and schools contribute to the neighborhood’s daily commercial, educational and social activities. As a result the district can be said to have more of an independent economy from the actual FCC-Abuja.

Places of interest include the National Youth Service Camp, Movida Lounge and Pizza Place.
