BUA Cement Plc has announced plans to reduce the price of cement in Nigeria from the present N5,500 to between N3,000 to N3,500.

The Chairman of the company, Abdul Samad Rabiu, made this known after a meeting with President Bola Tinubu at the State House, Abuja on Friday, September 15, 2023.

Rabiu disclosed that the cement company is adding two new plants at the end of the year to be commissioned by President Bola Tinubu, bringing BUA Cement’s total capacity to 17 million metric tons.

He said this is part of the company’s contribution to support the efforts of the Federal Government to bring down the prices of key commodities in the country, adding that this will enable BUA to bring down the price of cement to about N3,500 per bag.

”With these 6 million tons that we are commissioning by the end of the year and by the way his excellency has agreed to come and commission the plants sometime either in December or January next Year, BUA Cement will be producing about 17 million tons per annum and with that we intend to bring down the cost of cement from its current level of N5,000 or N5,500 per bag to may be N3,000 to N3,500 per bag.

“And we can only do this because we are producing this cement locally, 80% of the raw materials that we are using to produce cement in Nigeria is mainly limestone and gypsum and of course energy is part of it of course we have gas in Nigeria. So we want to support the government, we want to support their efforts in ensuring that the price of these commodities are brought down incidentally,” BUA Chairman said.
