The Abuja Master Plan provides for the development of Satellite Towns alongside the development of the City.  On account of the need to accelerate the provision of basic amenities in the Satellite Towns such as Roads, Water Supply and Electricity, the then Administration of FCT established the Satellite Towns Development Agency STDA in 2004 (Order I of 2004).
