Nigerian Coal Corporation Wikipedia

Nigeria still holds large coal reserves, estimated to be at least 2 billion metric tons. The discovery of bituminous coal suitable for use in coke production for the iron and steel industries opens up potential new domestic markets. With the loss of its largest domestic consumers, the NCC began exporting coal to Italy and the United Kingdom, as its low sulphur content is desirable. In 1999, the NCC lost its monopoly over the Nigerian coal industry as the Obasanjogovernment allowe
