You are welcome .You can start small and manage till you move to the next place.
I move in here 4 years ago and I never found it easy but I am getting settled and living better. If you are progressive, Abuja is okay for me.
We have areas for everyone is Abuja, Getto of the getto even .
But Lugbe is good.

Re: What Is The Cost Of Living In Abuja?? by Themandalorian: 10:02pm On Sep 04
It mostly depends on the location but since you said you are not looking for something too expensive, I can recommend Lugbe, Kubwa and Yanya. Just budget around 150k-200k for a very comfortable place. I mean with water, fence for additional security. But have it in mind that Kubwa maybe be higher than that.
Transport should be like 500-700 daily.

Abuja is for those cimimals, most especially the government sector and a few shrewd business men. let me give you an example, if on average you spend around 50~60k monynly, in Abuja you go spend like 100k. That's aside house rent and bills too.


To be honest it's a beautiful state, BUT TO ME, ANYTHING THAT MAKES LIKE HOLES ON MY ACCOUNT ain't worth it, even a woman.

Ordinary small piece of chicken and rice 1.5k, ordinary pure water of #5 naira na #20 in Abuja. in short, people are just scamming each other to see who get money pass.

The Landlord's are the biggest scammers, small self contain with room and parlour, they will start calling 1 mil. Thieves

Good day nairalanders, I plan on relocating to Abuja but I do not know how expensive it is and what to expect, though I heard its a very expensive place.

I am just a young man in his late twenties, I won't be living in a place where the affluent lives neither do I need a place where the poorest lives lol, I just need a cool place, and oh I am not married so I am living alone, I am not extravagant in spending and I am also not a miser but just someone who will just lives average like every other young man out there.

Just see me as a guy who wants to live in a cool self contain rather one room or bedroom
I wish to know how much I'll budget for monthly expenses and cost of housing
You can opt for an average accommodation from any of Nyanya, Old karu, Jikwoyi etc. You can get selcon of about 100-150k, one bedroom flat of 200-250k, cost of living is affordable. Transportation to town would cost you 800-1000 minimum depending on you destination but you won't enjoy going to work from that axis cos of the morning and evening kugbo traffic. You can also check Galadima, Apo, Mpape, Kubwa, Area1. There are affordable houses there too with easy access to town

the last time i went to Abuja was early this year before the restrictions of covid began, To my surprise Abuja is having a surge in population, I guess Nigerians are done with the evil gridlock and waking up at 4am Lagos shenanigans. Suburbs like Lugbe and Gwagwalada are fast developing to contain regular hustling Nigerians escaping Lagos enmasse, I think at least Accommodation would be affordable in these areas. But as for the metropolis, 1 room apartment alone fit reach 500k
You mean there is high migration to Abj?

In abuja you are either very wealthy or you are wretched. There is no middle ground. You will find out that even the people who claim to be doing fairly well are actually wretched and are just putting up appearances. If your salary is not up to 1m a month you can't live comfortably there. The prepare yourself. No friend in abuja. Even your relatives dont know you. The only time people will say hi to you is only when they think they can get something from you.
