Abuja was specifically chosen as a location that is both ethnically neutral (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 inwards the country.
