Abuja, Nigeria’s capital territory, is an essential city. It became the country’s seat of power in 1991 and has since housed the Heads of State and other top government officials, alongside government agencies and foreign embassies. Indeed, one of the fastest-growing cities in the world.

Abuja has not yet attained the status of Lagos – the nation’s commercial hub that harbors a variety of consignments and services for importing used cars to Abuja and other neighboring cities.

When purchasing cars abroad, most cars imported into Nigeria are usually from the United States and Germany. A simple internet search will show you different sites from which you can buy a car from either of those two countries.

But precisely considering the credibility and trustworthiness of a platform or the vehicle’s seller is crucial. Even better, people who have relatives abroad usually arrange with them to buy a car and ship it. You still have to take precautions, such as knowing the import duty rates for the vehicle.

Buy New Or Used Car

Interestingly, a small group of people in Nigeria strongly desire to own a brand-new car. The thrill of being the first to unwrap your brand-new car is indeed exhilarating.

Key Learnings

Abuja is a planned city located approximately at the center of the country. That makes it considerably distant from the nation’s seaports in Lagos and the Eastern part of the country. However, this has never been a limitation to its development.

Abuja was chosen explicitly as an ethnically neutral location (it is not home to people of any of the three major tribes: Hausa/Fulani, Yoruba, and Igbo) and at the center of Nigeria.

Nonetheless, another aim that the selection of Abuja as the Federal Capital Territory was supposed to achieve is economic expansion further in the country. You can import a vehicle to Lagos and transport it to Abuja – primarily by land.
