Ever wondered what the home and office of one of Africa’s most powerful men is like?
Life in the Aso Rock for the First Family (its only permanent residents) is like a cross between living in a fortress, a resort, and a museum… but somehow stranger.
Aso Villa was built in 1991 when the capital of Nigeria was moved from Lagos to Abuja.
Since 1991 Aso Villa has had the following occup
Since 1991 Aso Villa has had the following occupants as Presidents;
- Ibrahim Babangida
- Sani Abacha
