#Nigeriatour: Aso Rock, Abuja

By Dr. Raphael James
This is Aso-Rock, the large 400 metre monolith on the outskirts of Abuja, the FCT.
This is the Rock, that the Presidential villa is named after. The Presidential Complex, Nigerian National Assembly, and Nigerian Supreme Court are located around it. “Aso” means victory.
“I was told that this river that acts as a boundary surrounding the roc is filled up with large hungry crocodiles. My guide had to stop half way and pleaded with me to go back, but for me the adventure had no limit. I use to think the Aso-rock was inside the ASO-ROCK Presidential villa until today.”
