Home to the national capital Abuja – one of the fastest-growing cities in Africa – the Federal Capital Territory has risen to become a significant investment destination in recent years. Supported by rapid population growth, rising GDP and expanding household consumption, a wide offering of opportunities have arisen across construction, mining, agriculture, ICT and real estate. However, rapid urbanisation presents serious challenges. The ongoing prioritisation of transport and infrastructure spending, coupled with efforts to increase private sector investment in real estate go some way towards addressing these issues. However, more remains to be done to further increase private sector involvement in large-scale infrastructure projects and to leverage the territory’s manufacturing potential. This chapter contains an interview with Muhammad Musa Bello, Minister of the Federal Capital Territory.
