[size=14pt]Coal Reserves, Nigeria[/size]
In 1909, coal was discovered in Enugu, Nigeria. The Ogbete drift mine opened six years later. The Ogbete mine's operations and others in the country were merged into a new corporation in 1950: The Nigerian Coal Corporation. Nigeria's coal industry suffered a blow in the 1950s when oil was discovered. Up until this point, the Nigerian Railway Corporation was the largest consumer of coal in the country. However, after the discovery of oil, the Railway Corporation began to replace its coal burning trains with diesel-powered engines. [b]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 sulfur content is desirable one of the most bituminous in the world). The main Coal producing states in Nigeria are: Kogi, Enugu, Benue and Plateau

Agbaja represents one of the largest iron ore reserves in Nigeria and in the world having estimated reserves of 1.5 to 2 Billion tonnes of ore grading 48%-53% iron (Fe) metal. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Agbaja_mine . Other significant reserves in Nigeria include:Koto Karfe (Kogi state): 850 Million Tons. Itakpe (Kogi state) 310 Million Tons. Kogi is Nigeria's dominant Iron ore player. Other States where iron ore occurrences have been discovered include Nasarawa, Sokoto, Kaduna, Oyo, Osun, Bauchi, Borno and Benue.

[size=14pt]Tin (cassiterite) and Columbite Production, Nigeria[/size]
Nigeria is blessed with Huge Tin Ore reserves. Nigeria’s Jos Plateau, was once the hub of a mining industry which fed European demand for tin through much of the 20th century. Tin mining in Plateau began in October 1904 when the British colonial government sent a mineral-survey team to assess the mineral deposits within the region. Tin deposits were discovered in the Jos-Plateau area and foreign companies were allowed by the colonial regime to operate in the territory and mine the resources, using mechanised equipment which helped to curb the risks and prevent the death of the mine workers. Today, Nigeria is the second largest tin producing country in Africa, just above Russia globally , Although it has the reserves to sustain a much larger production with more investment. Nigeria's reserves are located in Plateau, Kano, Ondo, Nassarawa, Kwara, Bauchi, and Osun states

In short , the only places which can hold a candle to the homeland are benue , edo , cross river .
Poultry: chickens ,chicks , cockerel, ducks
Animal feed production
Banana and plantain

Even yet , it is still not good enough . The yield per hectare of land is still low . Ban okada( has decimated the car -taxi ranks) in the SW and any citizen willing to take up Agriculture should be assisted by the government of odua States .

The major source of foreign reserve in Thailand is Rice and rice related product. And their per capita income is higher than Nigeria. Dont down play Agriculture. if well manage it can raise Nigeria economy to a very high level.
United State is d number 1 exporter of food in the world. United State of America makes about 120 billion dollars yearly on agricultural export while Nigeria makes less than 40 billion dollars on crude oil sale.
However because of laziness and poor management, Nigeria is not maximizing its agricultural potential which can equal oil revenue if well planned and managed
Edo State tend to have most of the things in terms of varieties not volume per product in Southern Nigeria.

Wow...just that we don't give attention to agriculture again, d north is really leading in agriculture followed by south west.. Only if we can go bak to agriculture, we need to diversify from only oil. The only issue is, everyone is running away from farm work...
I tink d govt need to make agriculture attractive, put some measure in place to maintain d agriculture produce and management of it...
|Re: Nigerian States And What They Produce by Rawani: 9:45pm On Aug 12, 2015|
This is why Agriculture must be aggressively developed in this country. The revenue potential is beyond what oil currently offers us, especially considering its falling value, availability of shale, and the increasingly hostile competitive market.
President Buhari's plan to effectively diversify our mono-economy should be implemented in an accelerated manner. The huge deposits of solid minerals, added to revenue from agriculture will go a long way to buffer our departure from our helpless reliance on crude oil.
