For all those asking about the cost of living in Abuja.... My response is..... Lifestyle. You need to calculate, adjust and possibly make checks and balances to suite your lifestyle. Nigeria as a whole is a relatively cheap place to live pending on where and how you vhoose to live and settle down. Abuja on the other hand is a bit on the high side...hence the salary structure itself is also on the high side compared to other cities in the country. As they say, "tonto hime that much is given, much is demanded" goodluck
