Enugu, Nigeria Monorail Sytem

The word "Enugu" means "the top of the hill". It is also a mining town with significant coal deposits. From being the capital of the Southern Provinces, Enugu became the capital of the Eastern Region (now divided into nine States), then the capital of East Central State, Anambra State, (old) Enugu State, and now the capital of the present Enugu State through a process of state creation and diffusion of administrative authority. As a result, Enugu has a wealth of Nigerian Government investment in its infrastructure and institutions including those of higher learning. Enugu has a significant number of Universities and technical institutes and secondary schools. Therefore, Enugu is still viewed as the de facto capital of the Eastern region of Nigeria.
