Proposed coal projects
In September 2011, Minister of Power Bart Nnaji said the Federal Government planned to build three coal-fired power stations adding up to 3,000 megawatts in the states of Enugu, Kogi, and Gombe, drawing upon coal deposits in the three states as well as Benue. The Federal Government would have a 25 per cent stake, with state governments and private sector companies owning the rest. The Minister said the coal-fired plants may take about four years to complete.
On whether the Ministry of Power would revive the Oji River coal station in Enugu State that was destroyed during the Nigerian Civil War, Nnaji said the dilapidated station was obsolete and produced a mere 35MW.
