FG partners South African group to revive Enugu coal industry


ENUGU, JUNE 7, 2017 – There was excitement in Enugu last week, following the report that the Federal Government had chosen the Simang Group of South Africa to work along with the state government to revive coal industry for the benefit of the South East geopolitical zone.

The Simang nvestors who visited Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi at the Government House, Enugu, hinted that the principal objective of the investment drive was to use coal to generate electricity and then spin a chain of allied business activities for the benefit of Ndigbo and Nigeria as a whole.

An elated Governor Ugwuanyi who received the investors led by Dr. Odilim Enwegbara of the Pan Africa Group and Stephen Paddy, chairman of the Simang Group, said that he had always believed that coal would be a major catalyst that would kick-start the economic development of outh-ast in particular and the country in general.
