Ajaokuta, Nigeria’s Largest Steel Plant Is Finally Starting Production After 40 Years

Ajaokuta is Nigeria’s largest steel plant. It will finally start production four decades after it was built.

The Ajaokuta mill has cost the country over $8bn but has never produced any steel. It is hoped that getting the facility off the ground will save Nigeria billions of dollars in steel imports.

Installed on a 24,000 hectares (59,000 acres) site in 1979 with the coke oven and byproducts plant larger than all the refineries in Nigeria combined.
