In this article I will discuss the Neighbourhoods in Zuba town, Abuja. Zuba is a town in the Gwagwalada area council of Abuja FCT that is popularly known for transportation (to different parts of the country); Automobile spare parts market, fruits market and college of education. Its residential neighbourhoods are partly surrounded by mountain. In this article I have written about the various neighbourhoods that are found in the Zuba town located in the Gwagwalada area council of the FCT. The Runji neighbourhood This neighbourhood takes its locations on one part of the Abuja-Kaduna express-way. Sharing boundary with the no.1 satellite town of the FCT, Kubwa. This neighbourhood is occupied by low income earners, entrepreneurs; employees; transport workers and also students attending the College of Education. The good side of this area is that it has longer hours of power supply more than other neighbourhood as at the time of my writing. What I encountered in this area is that it has unclean drainage system which is not health friendly. I think the stakeholders (landlords etc) can do something to improve the status of the area. Zuba neighbourhood This is the first neighbourhood in Zuba town FCT that originated with the town. This neighbourhood consist of the fruit market, the auto-spare parts market, the motor park and beyond. This neighbourhood contain social amenities like banks, restaurant, superstores, courthouse, fuel station etc. This is the closest neighbourhood to the Abuja-kaduna express way. A lot of people are residing in this area. More especially, civil servants(people working for the government in Abuja Metro). Although the nature of the roads are in a state of disrepair in most parts. The power supply is average and the pipe-borne water is nowhere to be found with no sign of improvement. The neighbourhood linked and merged with a close-by town Madalla. Ikwa neighbourhood This is another neighbourhood in Zuba town in FCT, that is just behind the Zuba neighbourhood. This is an area harbored by civil servants, small entrepreneurs and students. This neighbourhood is characterized by rough roads, poor power supply etc. The main source of water is bore hole. There is a good population of people living here. the power supply is just like it used to be; ‘long hours light-out and short time lights-on’. The alternative power in the area is electric generator, popularly known as ‘I pass my neighbour’.
