Maitama District is to the north of the city, with the Wuse and Central Districts lying to its southwest and southeast respectively. This area is home to the top bracket sections of society and business, and has the reputation of being very exclusive and very expensive. Interesting buildings include the Transcorp Hilton Hotel, National Communications Commission Headquarters (NCC), National Universities Commission (NUC), Soil Conservation Complex, and Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC). The British High Commission is located along Aguiyi Ironsi Way, in Maitama. Also, the Maitama District Hospital is another notable building in Maitama. Maitama District is home to many of the European embassies.

Craftsmen & Carpenters

Via Flickr:

There is no shortage of talented carpenters and craftsmen in Nigeria. When I needed a table for my studio in Abuja I went to Deidei Lumberyard, there I was able to pick wood from a forest in Ondo State and had my choice of craftsmen right there to build a table with very minimal tools.

To encourage this industry the Nigerian government banned the importation of furniture. A symbolic gesture to appease the poor masses, what are the chances of Akintunde a Danfo driver in Ibadan ordering his new living room furniture from Ikea.

How do you tell the latest big money politician who just had his new castle in Maitama designed by a German/Arab architect, marbles and stones imported from Italy, security doors by American and Israeli companies, appliances and such from South Korea, Japan and Germany. All ideas and materials imported, slave labor courtesy of the Nigerian labor force. The castle is not complete without a Bentley and a Rolls Royce from England to adorn the garages.

How do you tell this dude to have his furniture designed and built in Deidei and not Moda Italian.
