Kuje is a Local Government Area (LGA) of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Nigeria. It is about 40km southwest of Abuja, the Capital of Nigeria. Kuje is a busy market town with a range of roadside stores selling pharmaceuticals, provisions, building materials, ironmongery, tools, phone cards, music CDs. It is also home to several "independent" petrol stations which are unpopular because of the apparent inaccuracy of the calibration of their pumps.
Kuje has several state and private schools including Government Secondary School, Kuje Science Primary School, the Capital Science Academy, DFGS Glorious Shining Star Academy and Nigeria-Ghana International College and Aflon Digital Academy. In the centre of Kuje is a colourful market held every 4 days with stalls selling fruit, vegetables, very fresh meat, other provisions, household goods, fabric, shoes, clothing, smoked fish and posters displaying European footballers pictured alongside their houses, wives and cars.
