The population of Abuja has grown rapidly alongside Nigeria's economic growth in recent years. The multi-cultural and multi-ethnic people of this city have some shared things in common, including a love of fish in their cuisine. Tropical fruits and red meat also play an important role in Nigerian cuisine as well.
