Excursions are rare avenues students have to get away from long and tedious academic lectures, practicals and workshops. It’s more like that option that gives you a breathing space from the sight of lengthy academic handouts, straight faced lecturers and over zealous students (especially those ones that sit at the front of the class with nerdy glasses and an answer for each question the lecturer asks). For students in the North-Central part of Nigeria, there are attractive and lovely tourist sites where students can visit for excursions. Here are five of them in no particular order;
Located in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, is a stunning and beautiful piece of nature known as Zuma Rock. This absolute beauty is a unique place for students to visit as it offers a serene environment and a calm ambiance for recreation and having fun.
Another favorable excursion destination for students in the North-Central part of Nigeria is the Gurara Falls. Located in Gurara Local Government Area of Niger State, Gurara Falls offers a lovely and peaceful environment coupled with the soothing breeze oozing out of the pure waterfall.
The National Assembly
The Building that represents almost everything about legislature in the Federal Republic of Nigeria. The National Assembly is one place where students can attend parliamentary sessions and also know more about legislative duties and functions. Essential for students that want to pursue a career in politics.
The highest peak in North-Central Nigeria and the third highest peak in Nigeria, Shere hills is a magnificent and intricate landscape that’s just perfect for adventurous students. Located in the hilly city of Jos, Shere hills offers a cool climate and a special ambiance.
Across the River Niger and located in Niger State, is the Kainji Dam. This dam has generated electricity for the whole of Nigeria since 1968 via the largest man-made lake in Nigeria; Kainji Lake. There are also options for fishing, irrigation and wildlife viewing in the game reserves around the lake.
