I don't know if the major construction in abuja has stopped because of their loss of the Commonwealth Games, either.

I am sure that a lot of the developments will not stop. Such as the Metro, as this is needed regardless of whether the city will be hosting such an event.

I am not sure however if other projects such as the Shopping, Commercial Complex in Maitama will be built.
