Abuja, city, capital of Nigeria. It lies in the central part of Nigeria, in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT; created 1976). The city is approximately 300 miles (480 km) northeast of Lagos, the former capital (until 1991).
Abuja is known for being one of the few purpose-built capital cities in Africa, as well as being one of the wealthiest. Abuja is Nigeria's administrative and political centre. It is also a key capital on the African continent due to Nigeria's geo-political influence in regional affairs.

Nigeria’s most valuable exports include crude petroleum oil (76.5% of its global total), petroleum gas (10.1%), floating structures including vessels (4.2%), base metal flexible tubing (3.9%), miscellaneous oil seeds and oleaginous fruits (0.5%) and cocoa beans (also 0.5%).

The Nigerian naira (NGN) is the official currency of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. The Central Bank of Nigeria manages and distributes the Nigerian naira and attempts to maintain price stability with it. The naira has been continually devalued since its inception in 1973, and inflation remains above 10% as of 2019.
For the fairest rates and the highest likelihood of having dollars to sell to you, the Central Bank of Nigeria is the best bet. With locations in over 35 cities, there's probably one near you wherever you are in Abuja.
