Aso Rock Presidential Villa is the Nigerian Presidential Complex which houses the residence and office of the Nigerian President. It is variously known as Aso Villa, The Villa, Aso Rock and State House. It is located in Abuja which is the federal capital territory. Aso Rock Presidential Villa is a national monument, it neither belong to the president nor any particular person.
It is located close to a popular site in Nigeria known as Aso rock hence it is named after the rock. Unlike some other countries presidential villas such as the United State White House, the Aso Rock Presidential Villa is a highly restricted area probably for security reasons, hence most people are only privileged to see only the outside view.
Since 1991 Aso Villa has had the following occupants Ibrahim Babangida, Sani Abacha, Abdulsalam Abubakar, Olusegun Obasanjo, Umaru Musa Yar’ adua and the current President of Nigeria, Goodluck Ebele Jonathan. We are fortunate to get an inside view of the Aso Rock villa and these wonderful photos will make you salivate.
