In Abuja.... HOW TO MAKE YOUR DREAMS COME TRUE

I came to Abuja reluctantly but falling in love with it happened very fast. I Craved the Fast paced life of the ultimate Cosmopolitan city in Nigeria, Lagos, but life had other plans for me. Its hard not to love Abuja. its clean, it quiet, its safe and in here hides the proverbial golden fleece, because here, with hardwork, vision and determination you can achieve in a few short months what it takes others longer time to achieve. Ok, a bit farfetched; maybe luck, knowing the right people, getting a good contract can put you in the right path to Success whether financial, political or emotional.

I didn’t Get Lagos, but I got my dream job, working in PR, Advertising and Events……. This set the ball rolling and in 3 years I had set up my own PR/Events Firm, White Rabbit Concept Ng. Abuja was an emerging market and the need for a dynamic firm like that came at just the right time, if I do say so myself…… I enjoyed my job tremendously and worked with the most enthusiastic people the industry had to offer here in Abuja, Lagos and around the country. It was in the cause of running the Firm that I realize that there was another need in the life of people that live here. A Guide!

If there is one thing I know about the city, it’s that people migrated to Abj from all over and the underlying reason is to earn a living. This translates to, NO TIME. Bankers who close at 9pm,monday to Monday; NGO Workers who are constantly travelling, Civil Servant who leave the office straight home and students who are stashed away in Gwagwalada. Most importantly, the international community who crawling around without a guide is one of the scariest notions for them. You will be surprised at how ‘where to buy a birthday cake’ or ‘where to listen to a jazz band’ is a very important question in this city.

CITY CRAWLER was borne out of this need. I decided, well I have these information, why not put it out there to help people and make their life much easier. The Guide started as Facebook notes, then the CC Blog and soon to Start CC on Radio. But on Saturday the 13th of March, we unveiled the cover of the 1st issue of City Crawler News-Magazine, a 12 page, newspaper formatted magazine which we intend to publish weekly.

We appreciate the tremendous support we have received so far on the Blog and we promise all our readers first rate blazing read, strictly original. we intend to keep our audience fascinated and our advertisers happy.
