The iron and steel industry in Nigeria started by government intervention through the construction of various steel rolling mills. After iron ore deposits were discovered in old Kwara State in the 1950s, the Nigerian First Republic government began active planning and mapping of strategies for local production of iron rods and steel.
However, many proposals presented by foreign companies were less enthused on steel production due to concerns about local technical know-how and market demand. But in 1967, a technical group from the Soviet Union proposed the use of the direct blast furnace process as a viable method of production in the country.
Further exploration of iron ore deposits by Soviet firm Technopromexport yielded commercial quantities around the Itakpe region of present Kogi State. In 1971, a Nigerian steel development authority was created to design plans for iron and steel projects and train students in iron and steel making.
Ever since then, there have been several steel companies in Nigeria, springing periodically and meeting the steel demands of Nigerians.
