Nigeria has a significant number of states which are headed by elected governors. In its entirety, Nigeria comprises 36 independent states with a single Federal Capital Territory –Abuja. Taking an insightful look at the creation of states in Nigeria, the first set of Nigerian states were created in 1967 by the then military Head of State General Yakubu Gowon. During this time (1967), 12 states were created from the former Regions. Some of these 12 states were Kwara, Ondo, Kano, Lagos and Cross River.

In 1976, General Murtala Mohammed established 7 more states to take the total to 19 states. 2 years after ascending the throne as Nigeria’s military Head of State, General Ibrahim Babangida established two more states taking the number of Nigerian states to 21. Meanwhile, the two states created in this regard are Akwa-Ibom and Katsina. 4 years later, precisely in 1991, General Ibrahim Babangida established 9 more states to take the tally to 30 Nigerian states. Finally, in 1996, Nigeria reached a milestone of 36 independent states (with Abuja as the F.C.T) following a declaration by General Sanni Abacha that 6 more states should be created. Meanwhile, the states created in this regard are Gombe, Nassarawa, Zamfara, Bayelsa, Ebonyi, and Ekiti. Since 1996, Nigeria has remained a country with 36 autonomous states.

As to the focal point of this article, Enugu is one of the popular Nigerian states located in the South-Eastern zone of the country. Extracted from Anambra state in 1991, Enugu is officially regarded as Enugu state but again, one of its interesting facts is that it belongs to a few Nigerian states that have their names as their capital cities. The other states in this category are Sokoto, Katsina, Kano, Kaduna, Gombe, and Bauchi.

In Nigeria, Enugu state maintains the largest coal deposit and historical facts show that Nigeria’s first discovery of coal occurred in its largest and capital city. Meanwhile, the other prominent cities areas are Awgu, Agbani, and Ngwuo. Due to its vast coal deposit and its great influence in Nigeria’s first discovery of coal, the state has been dubbed the Coal City State.

As part of the states within the South-Eastern zone of Nigeria, bordered by Ebonyi state around its eastern region. Meanwhile, it is bordered by Imo State and Abia State around the southern region. Surrounded by Anambra State in its western region, Enugu State also shares land borders with some North-Central states including Kogi and Benue.

Enugu became the target of Nigeria’s colonialists in 1909 when the Europeans first settled there and obtained the presence of coal in the area. The British colonial government then took advantage of the coal discovery to carry out the first coal shipment to Britain in 1914. Following this, the British government developed an interest in the area and soon expanded its mining activities. In the quest to facilitate mining and make the Coal City a permanent settlement for people from different parts, a railway system was launched. After some years, Enugu became the target of foreign businesses which soon emerged from the city. Meanwhile, the most prominent of these foreign businesses were United Africa Company, the British Bank of West Africa, Kingsway Stores and John Holt.

Top 10 Facts about Enugu State

  • The word “Enugu’’ is coined through the combination of two Igbo words namely; `Enu’ and `Ugwu’ which translate into `hilltop’. Meanwhile, this name came into being with reference to the hilly geographical structure of the state.
  • Enugu is the Nigerian state where coal was first discovered. In 1909, a British mining engineer –Mr. Kikson –was walking around the Udi Ridge in search of silver but surprisingly, he discovered a vast deposit of coal, marking the first discovery of coal in Nigeria. During this period, Nigeria was under the colonial reign of Lord Lugard who served as the country’s first British governor general. With much inclination towards this astonishing discovery of coal, Lord Lugard ensured that Nigeria marked its first shipment of coal in 1914.
  • After the discovery of coal, the colonial administration constructed the Eastern Line railway as a channel for conveying large deposits of coal to the port of Port Harcourt from Enugu. Meanwhile, the colonial government established the city of Port Harcourt to carry out this very purpose.
  • 3 years after Nigeria’s amalgamation by Lord Lugard, Enugu was elevated to the status of a town and at this time, it was regarded as Enugwu-Ngwo. However, the name was formalized into Enugu in 1928 due to the quick territorial expansion into the lands that belonged to other indigenous communities.
  • On the 30th of May 1967, an announcement by Biafra adherents identified Enugu as the capital of Biafra –a Republican state that only lasted three years (1967-1970). With regard to this announcement, some people regard Enugu as the “capital of Igboland’’. However, Enugu was eventually held hostage by the Nigerian army and as a consequence of this, Umuahia was made the new Biafran capital.
  • The six-storeyed tower, owned by ACB (the African Continental Bank), is the tallest structure in the CBD (Central Business District) of Enugu
  • Enugu is one of the most fancied Nigerian states for tourism. Tourists are always enlivened by its numerous tourist centres including Enugu National Museum, IMT Sculptural Garden and Art Gallery, Governor’s Lodge, Eastern Region Parliamentary Building, Okpara Coal Mine, Onyeama Coal Mine and Polo Amusement Park
  • In February 2009, the state government passed a bill into law, implying that abduction is a capital offense punishable by the use of a weapon. In order to curb the high incidence of abduction, this bill was successfully passed after having been endorsed by the state’s House of Assembly.
  • Impressively, Enugu boasts of a number of Nigerian dignitaries and celebrities who have made their marks in various fields including politics, entertainment, and sport. Some of these personalities are Jay Jay Okocha, Chinedu Okoli (popularly known as Flavour), Patience Ozokwor, Ike Ekweremadu (Nigeria’s current Deputy Senate President), Azubuike Chibuzo Nelson (aka Phyno), Nkem Owoh and Pete Edochie
