This is not a Ship, It is a Public Building in Abuja Constructed By Local Engineers.
The above building is the Nigerian Defence Headquarters located at the Federal Capital Territory in Abuja. The Federal Ministry of Defence building in Abuja is also called ‘The Ship House’ because of its architectural nature shaped like a ship. It was originally designed for Nigerian Ports Authority by Building Projects Consultants Ltd, a consultancy firm in Kano.
The building was conceptualised, designed and the construction surpervised by Architect Umar Othman Tofa with his team of other professionals.
It is important to note that this building was originally built and owned by Nigerian Ports Authority as thier National HQ during IBB’s regime. It was President Olusegun Obasanjo that sent NPA HQ back to Lagos and asked the military to take over the building.
