Gabriel Arcanjo Ferreira da Costa (born 1954) is a Santoméan politician who was Prime Minister of São Tomé and Príncipe from 12 December 2012 to 25 November 2014. He previously served as Prime Minister briefly in 2002.
Costa was Ambassador to Portugal from 2000 to 2002. He was appointed as Prime Minister to lead a coalition government in April 2002. However, he was sacked from that post on 27 September 2002 by President Fradique de Menezes after army unrest over two controversial promotions.
On 3 December 2012, he was again appointed as Prime Minister by President Manuel Pinto da Costa, following the dismissal of Patrice Trovoada, who had lost his parliamentary majority.
