FG Set to replace Eagle Square with a New 69.8 Billion Naira Proposed Abuja National Square


According to a publication by The Guardian, the Federal Government is set to replace the historical eagle square with a new edifice. Upon completion in a couple of years, the new Abuja National Square, a component of the Nigeria Cultural Centre and Millennium Tower project located in the Central Area, would displace the Eagle Square as the preferred national event centre, Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Bala Mohammed, has disclosed.
Mohammed told newsmen at the weekend during an inspection of the project that the 40,000 square-metre platform is meant to host national and other symbolic events. Located between the National Mosque and the National Christian Centre, the project forms the roof of a two-level basement car park built to accommodate 1,200 cars.
According to Mohammed, the Cultural Centre and Millennium Tower project, which comprises four major components, was conceived as a multifunctional edifice with facilities for cultural exposition, tourism, socialisation, recreation, hospitality and commercial activities.
He further listed the four components of the project as the Cultural Centre, National Square and Underground Car Park, the Millennium Tower with a revolving Restaurant, and Belvedere and a Commercial Tunnel.
