Every state in Nigeria has their various number plate codes. These codes engraved on plate numbers have what they mean.
In our previous posts, we talked about Lagos State, Anambra, Imo, Abia, Jigawa, Ondo, Katsina, and Enugu State number plate codes and what they mean. This time around, we would reveal the meaning of Abuja Number Plate Codes.
The first three letters you see on any plate number indicates the Local Government area of registration for the vehicle.
Below are the number plate codes and what they mean.
ABJ – Abaji Area Council
ABC – Abuja Municipal Area Council
BWR – Bwari
GWA – Gwagwalada
KUJ – Kuje Area Council
KWL – Kwali
RSH – Karshi
RBC – Rubuchi
YAB – Yaba
The license plates are generally white, and the number itself is of blue imprint. The background consists of an outline of a map of Nigeria. The top left corner bears the Nigerian flag or the coat of arm. The state name and slogan is displayed at the top centre of the plate, and the “Federal Republic of Nigeria” is written at the bottom.
Abuja is the capital city of Nigeria, in the middle of the country. The skyline of the city, which was built largely in the 1980s, is dominated by Aso Rock, an enormous monolith. It rises up behind the Presidential Complex, which houses the residence and offices of the Nigerian president in the Three Arms Zone on the eastern edge of the city. Nearby are the National Assembly and the Supreme Court of Nigeria.
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.
