David Umahi, the Minister of Works, has convened a meeting with prominent cement manufacturers to discuss the escalating cost of cement.

He expressed worry that, despite huge patronage by road and housing contractors to cement manufacturers, the cost of the product was rising at an astronomical rate.

A statement signed by the Minister’s Special Adviser (Media), Orji Uchenna Orji, in Abuja on Saturday said the meeting will take place on Monday, February 19, 2024, at the Ministry’s Conference Hall, Mabushi, Abuja.

The statement read in part, “The Honourable Minister of Works, His Excellency, David Umahi CON, has summoned an urgent meeting of all cement manufacturers in Nigeria.

“Those invited are Dangote Plc, BUA Plc, Larfarge, and others.”


He quoted the Minister as saying, “It is common knowledge that the manufacturers have their challenges, which we shall look into, but from our findings, the disparity between ex-factory price and the market price is wide. We therefore need  to look into the situation and other issues with a view  to finding a common front.”
