Kuje Local Government Area in Abuja Neighborhood
Kuje Local Government Area in Abuja Neighborhood
Abuja is the capital city of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and just like every other city therein, it has six local governments namely; Abaji, Abuja Municipal, Gwagwalada, Kuje, Bwari and Kwali.
Each local government has its different amenities that help to make the local government an entity.
We all know that a city like Abuja is a city for elites and the highly respected. As a matter of fact the first time I visited Abuja, I felt like there was too much competition and the place was too high class.
As time passed by with a lot of research and looking into places in Abuja, I discovered that there was somewhere that wasn’t as expensive as the rest parts of Abuja. Standard of living here was just moderate and affordable. Sometimes it bothered me that people didn’t know about this place and so I decided to write about it. So let me tell you a place that has as much industrialization as other parts of Abuja but is modest and decent for the average Nigerian.
So for the purpose of this article, I’ll be telling you about Kuje Local Government and I’m excited to take you on this trip myself.
Kuje Local Government Area has several aspects that has made it into what it has today. Starting from its population to the land mass, to the number of villages, schools, hospitals and many other amenities. Majority of the citizens of Nigeria do not know or haven’t even heard about this place, while some residents of Abuja, the Federal Republic of Nigeria do not even know about this place. So I’m going to tell you about it, pay rapt attention and learn.
Briefly on Kuje Local Government Area.
My research on Kuje brought to my notice the present trend of development in the council area, both the present and the proposed developments. It has also made me focus my attention on the area to learn more about and be more enlightened enough to share the information. Kuje has some very well serviced and infrastructural areas. These places are characterized by good road network in the case of kuchako layout, good estates like union homes (a subsidiary of union bank ) and also good schools befitting the status of the residents and visitors at large. Some companies have succeeded in embarking on mass housing estates in the area, and different financial institutions have also joined in on trying to develop the local government. To show their commitment, they demolished old buildings, built their structure and then attained their goal of turning the place into an urban and industrialized place.
To make this better, megafactories ,large farms as well as estate developers other than union homes, NAF, and some others joined hands to improve the level of development taking place in kuje, and they did a great job of it.
Now let’s start talking about Kuje proper.
Location and Population of Kuje
The first thing you’ll be learning about today is the location and population of Kuje local government. It’s easy to just say that kuje headquarters is somewhere around the corner but that ain’t right. So this is the proper way to give the description of a location. Kuje headquarters is located 40km southwest of Abuja. The coordinates of kuje local government on the map are 8°53’47°N 7°14’35” E. 8.89639°N 7.24306°E.
The total land mass of Kuje local government area of abuja, the capital city of Nigeria is 635 sqm (1664 km^2.) And the good people of the kuje equally amount to 97,367 as at 2006 census held in Nigeria.
With these number of people, I’m thrilled and eager to know how they all live in this town and how they have money to sustain themselves and how well the amenities they have are being maintained to better serve them.
Every local government has it’s own set of villages or towns that occupy it and this one’s no different. In kuje local government area, these towns not only occupy space, they contribute immensely to the growth, development and improvement of the local governments standards. By the mere unification of these villages, you can tell that this local government can only grow from its present condition, which isn’t all that bad. There are 110 villages in this local government and they have been listed here in alphabetical order.
List of Towns or Villages in Kuje local government Area.
If you followed carefully you’ll notice that they’ve been written in alphabetical order because some of them sound really alike. Its hard to tell which is which,but at least now you have a list of them.
Hospitals and Health Care Infrastructure.
I was once asked to deliver a lecture the importance of regular check ups and a sound health as a Nigerian. It was one funny topic to talk about and I was quite young but yes I had a lot to talk about. Just at the time my Nokia phone battery that usually lasted for days, went off. I mean I used it for so long without plugging in and expected it to last forever. As this happened, I took advantage of the situation and made it the introduction to my lecture. If machines crash after a long time,what about humans? It became a very interesting and intellectually beneficial lecture for everyone who was in attendance. Somehow I feel like it applies here.
Without a sound health, how do we work hard enough to be beneficial to our society? Without health infrastructure how do we know how healthy or unhealthy we are? How do we treat ourselves when we fall sick. This is the importance of a health care facility.
However, in Kuje Local government there aren’t a lot of them. There is just one government hospital, one government health center and one private clinic in the whole of the local government area. This is not so good considering the number of villages or towns in this local government area. I mean, take a good look at the population of this place and then the hospitals. It is notching to be written about.
Education is a very vital part of life and having a place to get that education from is quite an achievement for a community or local government. It isn’t just an achievement for the local government as regards creating an opportunity for children to learn, it also creates a very commercial environment that’s useful for making profits and raising revenues for the development of the local government.
However, it is important that we appreciate the schools located there and encourage the occupants of the local government to appreciate their services too.
There some private schools and also some government schools located in Kuje local government area. Some of which are as follows, Government secondary school Kuje, Kuje Science Primary School, Capital Science Academy, Glorious Shining Star Academy, Nigeria- Ghana International College, and Aflon Digital Academy. We can’t take all of these but I’ll talk about some of them right now.
Government Secondary School
Government secondary school (GSS) Kuje, like the others in different states in Nigeria, is a public and government funded school in Kuje local government. It doesn’t require tuition for attendance and is open to all candidates who pass their primary six and common entrance exams.
Kuje Primary School
This school is a primary school that reopened in 2002 after it was reconstructed. The renovation and reconstruction was funded by British Airways’ charity programme tagged “change for good”. The opening ceremony was attended by the former president olusegun obasanjo. This event took place two days before the anniversary of the widely accepted treaty : The United Nations conventions on the rights of a child.
Kuje Science Primary School is a typical representation of how the public and devoted individuals from private sectors can work together with total commitment and achieve great strides.
This school has basic amenities that other regular government funded schools like Electric generator, pipe born water, decent restrooms distinguished for boys and girls , library, computer rooms, and science laboratories.
Capital Science Academy
Capital science academy Kuje, Abuja is a private boarding that was founded in the year 2003. It is one of the best boarding schools in Kuje local government and has the best academic and extracurricular structures a school has to offer. This school has the capacity to accommodate 900 students per session, has basic facilities, a conducive learning environment and a good work space for the facilitators as well.
Capital science academy has also created for her outgoing students the opportunity to pick from some of the top- 16 tertiary institutions in the country and around. CSA has two teaching blocks, one for junior secondary students and the other for senior secondary school students. It also has eight operational science laboratories, three ICT suites, a functional media house or centre, and a fully stocked library that functions all seven days in a week. Capital science academy has also ensured that facilities are equally made available for home economics, the arts and music.
The school also has a very big hall used mostly for examinations, it has the boys and the girls hostel situated at the extremes of the school premises. This school is located in a very secluded area so the security is really tight. They have security details attached to each one of the five hostels. The school also has a multi- purpose hall used for activities like visiting days, career day events, assemblies and other programs. A functional infirmary with professionals and hardworking nurses that are prepared to serve and tend to the student’s’ health needs.
Religion and relaxation have also not been left out. For the Muslim students, there is a mosque as there is a chapel for the Christian students. For sports, there is a tennis court,football pitch, four hundred metre teach,and a swimming pool. In a case where there is any need for movement from school, there are four coaster buses available in case of excursions, two 12 sector buses and an ambulance for future emergencies.
Nigeria Ghana International College.
The Nigeria Ghana international college was founded in the year 2006. This private institution is a government approved school that comprises both junior and senior secondary school. Apparently, Kuje is a good location for hosting boarding schools. You can’t blame them, the place has a kind of serenity that allows for a conducive learning environment.
NGIC is highly funded by amazing investors and yields good results at the end, which make it easy for them to afford the state-of-the-art infrastructure. Some of these facilities include spacious and adequately ventilated classrooms, comfortable staff quarters, a very conducive administer active block, church and mosque for worshiping, a good dining hall space, functional and fully equipped laboratories, well stocked library and even a computer based test centre accredited and acknowledged by the Joint admissions matriculation board.
Even with the quality infrastructure and efficient staff, the management still ensures that there is room for human resource capacity building and development to help in serving the students better. This is the one way in which the school has remained distinct. The school has as employees, very highly skilled Nigerian and Ghanaian Facilitators that help in the improvement of the student’s intellectual standard. To further help in achieving this goal, the school has set up an “intervention program” to help students become better versions than their predecessors.
Here are some of the notable things about Nigeria Ghana international College.
The school is a private institution but has been approved by the government.
It has experienced, professional, and skillful Nigerian and Ghanaian teachers.
It has fully operational and equipped laboratories.
The school lays emphasis on science, technology, engineering, mathematics, entrepreneurship, industrialization and law.

Foreign and Local excursions or field trips.
Piques an interest in skill and talent development
Markets in Kuje Local Government
I tell people all the time that the only place I cannot live in is a place without a market. There’s no way I’m traveling to another local government to buy foodstuff. Thankfully, kuje doesn’t just have one market, it has two functional markets. The first market is the 9ne which only takes place once every four days; their market days. The second is centrally located and is functional all days of the week.
In these markets they sell fruits, vegetables, fresh meat, household goods, fabric, clothing, shoes and many more. As you can see, these markets are very operational. The best thing about the markets in kuje is that, everything comes at very affordable prices. Now that’s a reason to leave my local government to the next to buy stuff. Everything is cheap in Kuje Local government. However, these markets are not properly planned and are not modern at all. They lack all the facilities that would make it a modern market including a bad parking space. Nevertheless, the local government has decided to renovate the place and we’re looking forward to seeing a modern market in no distant time.
Agriculture in Kuje
In Nigeria, agriculture is one of the basic and foundational source of our economic status. At least it was before it was benched for oil.
Nevertheless, agriculture is back again and most likely stronger now. Agriculture is a good source of livelihood and a very good source of income. In Kuje, the traditional farmers have not ignored agriculture like every other person. They have continued in their farming activities despite the challenges they must have faced.
They’ve faced several challenges over the years from farmland challenges to input, and even fertilizers. The kuje people have pulled through. Kuje people practice different types of farming, from different livestock production to crop production and some more. The kuje people engage in poultry production, fishery, production of grains and other crops to keep agriculture alive in the area.
Farmland is under the jurisdiction of the area council and getting a piece of land for agricultural purposes in kuje isn’t all that difficult. However, you’re in Nigeria and everything is not as it seems. I haven’t been able to get my hands on the correct proceedings required to get a piece of land for agricultural purposes, but I know that in Kuje it will be better.
It is also important to state here that the people of kuje also engage in agro allied productions as well. Some of the farms and agro allied companies have been stated below.
Tiara farms -Kuje area council, kuje, Abuja.
Bravolak Foods Nigeria.- farms and food processing companies.
Solar house system limited- for agricultural products and farm batteries,
Mcmauk Limited- manufacturing and production of agricultural goods respectively- sauka, kuje, Abuja.

There’s a lot more from where these came so I’m encouraging you all who live in kuje and want to practise agriculture to get ready. There are a lot of them, and you’ll be the most elated when you see how fast your business blooms.
Also, the kuje area council also gives out agric loan and grant to all those who are just starting out. It is a benefit from the local government. Kindly enjoy if you want to join them. I don’t know how hectic it would be now to rent or lease a piece of land for this purpose, but I know that it is possible. Even if you don’t get from the government, then get yourself acquainted with prospective investors.
Media and Communication in Kuje Abuja
Wherever you are in the world, it is important that you find a means of knowing your environment and what’s going on beyond it. I remember my trip from Kaduna in the month of may. We encountered masquerades at kogi state and though it was beautiful to see their cultural heritage in display, I really just wanted to go home. It wasn’t something I planned for and frankly I would have preferred being a tourist there to being a traveller because in the end, we stayed on one spot for over an hour before we could move. You don’t want that happening to you. In the best way possible, you need to know where you’re going to and know a little bit about the place before or when you get there.
Kuje has a local magazine with which you can get the local news from. The magazine is called Kuje Reflections. Kuje reflections was launched in November 2014 and has been operational and functional since then. Remember how I said you’ll need to know about where you’re going to? This is one quick way to scan through the whole of kuje while seated in the bus. It contains everything you need to know about kuje, their lifestyle, their business life and even their religious life. Once in a while, businesses and organisations are featured in kuje reflection to help citizens find services for whatever troubles they have. Its somewhat like a business directory or the yellow pages to them. Having these in the magazine make the citizens of kuje know what’s available to them and what’s not.
Well, when one stops functioning as they should, there is need for a change or replacement. When kuje reflection wasn’t giving so much as expected in the modern times, a new magazine came and overtook kuje reflection in may 2016. Kuje reflection no longer had so much impact on the community magazine has since its inception, a new and vibrant form of communication will surfaced in 2016, the weekly newsletter was introduced in February 2016. It helped in serving the entire Kuje communities with news on people, places and event. It also bridged the communication gap in all the communities in kuje. It has pages dedicated to council activities so that the people are usually aware of what the government of the day is doing, and this was in partnership with the council as information was to be collated and published for public consumption.
The other magazine called Konfam which released its maiden edition in May 2016, centred on Kuje as a whole and not just the active communities, its culture, values and the people of Kuje in general. Basically, everything you need to know about Kuje in detail. The goal of Konfam magazine is basically bring Kuje to the light. The brains behind the Kuje Konfam Magazine are young and talented people who work hard and have sleepless nights to give the people the same juicy news feed all the time. You can bet that in no time, konfam magazine confirmed its place in the hearts of the citizens of kuje.
Here’s another thing we cannot do without in Nigeria. Money. Frankly, I wish sometimes that we still used cowries or some currency that was less fleeting than the Naira. Well, here we are, loving the naira regardless of how fleeting it can be. Bearing this in mind, it is undeniable that while we need to find a way to save more, we also need uninterrupted access to our finances. We have banks and they have become a necessity in any environment we find ourself. I mean you literally go to the mall and the moment you run out of cash, you’re either in search of an automated teller machine or you’re hoping the sales person has a POS to sort the bill. So we cannot do without the bank.
In kuje local government, there are quite a number of banks. More than for savings and cash related issues, the banks situated there are usually open to suggestions on how to make the local government better. The banks also provide loans for the farmers in the local government to further facilitate the growth of agriculture in the local government and Nigeria.
Some of the banks have been listed below.
First city monument bank
Mainstreet bank limited sauka, kuje
Aso savings and loans sauka, kuje abuja
Lapo Microfinance bank sauka, abuja
First bank Nigeria, sauka kuje.
Hasal microfinance bank, kuje.
So feel comfortable enough to spend all the money you want to… there’ll be a place to withdraw from if you need to.
Hotels in Kuje Abuja
Going away from home can be very tiring sometimes. The stress of having to leave the comfort of your home and go somewhere else on a business or work trip,and have to be lodged in a place with probably no good source of electricity, terrible food and ant infested towels is enough to stress over. Trust me, worst thing could happen and I write from experience.
However, today is the day to be thankful because you have come to the right place. I am going to be telling you about some of the best hotels in Kuje local government area. This way, when you visit any town in the local government, you can easily locate a nice, conducive and comfortable hotel to spend the night.
So here are some of the hotels where you can and be comfortable throughout your stay.

Dera International Hotels.
Apparently, hotel owners in this part of town have really cool names for their hotels and they aren’t just cool by their name, they match the expectation.
The dera international hotels located along prison road kuje area council is one of a kind. While the rooms are comfortable and affordable-this is the best part- there’s free Wi-Fi available for any room you pay for. I want to move to this hotel just for WiFi, but that’s not all. You’ll have a good parking space, comfortable room, beautiful environment and topnotch service to back it up. The room categories are as follows;
Standard room + WiFi – #3500
Superior room +WiFi – #4500
Executive room+WiFi -#5500
Suite + WiFi-#10,150
Its impossible to not love the Dera international hotel but people are different a and with their differences comes their difference in taste. Which is why some of you reading right now will not agree and want something else. No judgements here. Allow me give you something else you’ll not refuse. Hopefully.
The Vilanda hotel
Drumroll……. Wow, do I love that name, Vilanda….. This one isn’t just beautiful, it’s cozy. Its one of those “getaway with your spouse’ kind of hotel thats perfect for just you two. Its not like the luxurious Dubai hotels of course but who says you need luxury to be cozy?

Apart from the way the place is commercially and industrially inclined, it is also a good place to raise your kids. It will be best to apply now if you want an apartment in this estate.
Nothing gladdens my heart more than when I see an organisation stretching into other sectors to both benefit the public and also expand their business. Union bank has shown an excellent example of how organizations can contribute to the basic needs of society and also benefit themselves.

Air Conditioning Units.
You can also get well air conditioning installed for an additional fee. The thing us, in the pre construction stage, internal wiring for air condition units have already been done for futuristic installation.

Churches/ Mosque In Kuje Local Government Area
As an individual, there are a couple of things that make us who we really are, that mould are life’s perspectives and shape our general actions as human beings. One of the things that contribute this much to our lives and shapes the way we think and manage different situations is our religion. If you’re one of the people who think that your religion is just meant for your place of worship then this article would become less interesting at this point and I apologize. However, for the benefit of those that consider their religion part of their lives and as an institution that guides their actions they’ll need to find a place for worship when they visit Kuje.
In Nigeria, we practice two major religions; Christianity and Islam. The Christians believe in Jesus and the Muslims in Mohammed. They both learn about their religions and worship in either a church or mosque respectively. Both religions are practiced and have participants in kuje local government area.

All work and no play they say, makes jack a dull boy. It make me dull too. Nigeria is a country where everything and everyone you come across practically stresses you one way or another. Let’s try something here, if you work from home,you’ll be forced to deal with the power holding company of Nigeria, if you have to get petrol you’ll have to go out. When you step out, peradventure you have a car, you’ll most likely meet traffic on your way out, if you don’t the tricycle you enter will meet the same traffic. If its Lagos, you’ll most likely meet a fight on the road between your tricycle driver and another transporter. If you’re lucky, you’ll go straight to the petrol station with no itches but get there and join this very long and frightening queue. On this queue arguments will arise and we can go on and on and on about this and never stop. You’ll need some form of relaxation to wear the stress off.
There are different ways to relax. You could go swimming, walking along the beach, drinking and dancing with friends, reading in a serene environment, clubbing, and a whole lot of things. Feel free to decide on which type of outing you wish to go on. For some people they love bars. Remember how I told you about the hotels in kuje local government and how I said there were more of them, yes you do. Here’s a list of hotels with bars and lounges in Kuje that you will certainly love to visit and relax with your friends.
Kingdomz guest house, bar and relaxation center
Kings summit guest house
Dera International hotels
Akands hotel limited
Moonlight Garden and Resorts.
Nigeria is a country that is large, diverse and filled with different people from different ethnocultural groups. They are scattered around the country in different places and are united by basic things like living in the same community or local government. Every citizen of Nigeria is important to themselves and to the country and as much as possible should try to act accordingly.

They’ve gone from just selling food crops to, food processing and exporting. You would be proud of the residents of Kuje local government area.
