NIGERIA CENTENARY CITY
Abuja Centenary City is a city being planned as part of the Nigeria centenary celebration. The centenary city according to the Secretary to the Federal Government, Senator Pius Anyim, would be modeled after cities such as Dubai, Monaco and Singapore, to serve as a political and economic tool for securing foreign investment.
"The idea is to get a better city than the present Abuja where people will not need to provide basic amenities by themselves." said the Nigerian President Dr Goodluck Ebele Jonathan.
It is expected that the Abuja Centenary City will be the financial hub of the capital of Nigeria.
An efficient business enclave will position Nigeria as a key player in the global financial arena.
The new city will be sustainable because it balances economic, social, cultural and environmental factors to produce harmonic development.
The Abuja Centenary City is part of the celebration of the Independence Centenary of Nigeria, therefore, certain buildings and locations will be identified as venues and will be included in the program of the celebration.
The Centenary City is a project of the future. It will be a high profitable entity for the government agencies, investors and users because of its designation as a “duty free zone” and “tax shelter” with special banking regulations.
