Enugu, Enugu State

“In whose hand are the depths of the earth, The peaks of the mountains are His also. The sea is His, for it was He who made it, And His hands formed the dry land.” Ps 95:4-5 NASU

Enugu, the capital city of Enugu State is situated inland in the southeastern region and is affectionately known as the “Coal City.” This city holds historical significance in Nigeria’s development, playing a pivotal role in the once-thriving coal mining industry.

Enugu is the dwelling place of the Igbo-speaking people, celebrated for their industrious spirit, entrepreneurial endeavours, resourcefulness, extensive travels, and warm hospitality. The city stands as a testament to the cultural richness of the Igbo community.

Beyond its historical contributions, Enugu serves as a hub for Nigeria’s renowned film industry, Nollywood. The city’s vibrant cultural scene extends to sports, arts, and a harmonious blend of traditional and modern attractions. With friendly locals and a lively nightlife, Enugu has evolved into a notable tourist destination in Nigeria.

Commerce and tourism increased the influx of Muslims into this iconic city. Migrants from the North found harbour in Enugu, being involved in various jobs. The city is predominantly a home to Christians. While there are few adherents of traditional religion, and people from Northern Nigeria practicing Islam. Notably, some indigenous residents have undergone religious conversions, embracing Islam due to various personal reasons.

Please Pray:

  • Thank God for the neutrality this city provides in gospel engagement to those without the Gospel.
  • Pray that believers will maximize the opportunity God has given them to reach their migrant neighbours.
  • Pray for supernatural encounters and divine revelation of the person of Jesus to the increasing migrant population in Enugu.
