A Brief History of Aso Rock

Aso Rock, a large rock which is about 936 metres above sea level, is the biggest and highest rock in Abuja. In Gbagyi dialect, the word ‘Aso’ implies victory. Thus, this Rock holds a significant importance in the culture and history of the people of Gbagyi.

There are a couple of local priests that look after the rock and it’s often said that to climb or enter any of the caves, you would need to take permission from the priests. Since 1991 when the capital of Nigeria was moved from Lagos to Abuja, Aso Rock became the location of the Presidential Villa generally known as Aso Rock Villa.
