APC Berates Alleged Plans To Import Coal

The All Progressives Congress (APC), South East Zone has expressed dismay over alleged plans to import coal into the country despite huge deposits of the mineral in the country.

Spokesman of the APC in the South East Zone, Osita Okechukwu made the position of the party known while addressing the newly elected Enugu State Correspondents’ Chapel of the Nigeria Union of Journalists.

He said it was unfortunate that a country that is richly endowed with an estimated 2 billion tons of coal was planning to import the same mineral from South Africa.
