South Africa overtaken as biggest economy in Africa after Nigeria rebases GDP calculation to more than $500bn.
Nigeria’s capital Abuja is a city under construction.
Hundreds of new homes are built each month. But all too often, they are priced beyond the reach of the average person. As a result, most of them remain empty.
Rents in the country are among the highest in Africa.
Those who cannot afford to pay those rents are forced to live far away from their workplaces.
