Cement Price: House Of Reps Sends Warning To Cement Manufacturers

The House of Representatives has sent a stern warning to the Cement Manufacturers Association of Nigeria (CMAN) over the arbitrary increase in the price of cement in the country.

The Chairman, Joint House Committee on Solid Minerals, Industry, Commerce and Special Duties, which is probing the arbitrary increase in the price of Cement, Gaza Gbwefi, who issued the warning in Abuja on Monday, said the persistent absence of the cement manufacturers after being summoned twice by the lawmakers was an affront to the powers of the National Assembly.

He also warned CMAN to desist from using frivolous court injunctions to interfere with the ongoing investigation of the arbitrary increase in the price of cement in the country.

Gaza also submitted that the CEO of the Federal Competition and Consumer Protection Commission (FCCPC), Ms Boladale Adeyinka is not doing enough to protect consumers and users of cement in line with the laws which established the commission.
