Nigeria’s Cement Producers Say They Aren’t Responsible For Rash Of Building Collapses

Allegations are flying in Nigeria over the recent rash of building collapses. Are cement Producers in the country selling poor quality products? No, they say.
“The Association of Cement Producers (which comprises Lafarge Cement Wapco, Ashaka Cement, Northern Cement Company of Nigeria and United Cement Company Plc) refuted the statement, insisting that attention should be rather directed at the construction practices employed,”reports Nigerian Bulletin.
According to the association, the cement quality in Nigeria uses new technology and complies with international standard. On top of this they say regulatory bodies ensure that product quality is always “top-notch.”

“There is no such thing as substandard cement in Nigeria. What we discussed earlier is that there is a need to bring different solutions for different applications and each of those solutions has very high level of quality control standards and this, for us, is critical to continue to help the environment to have good cement. Education of block makers, education of construction and education of mixing is absolutely essential to raise the quality of the construction at the level of the quality of the cement which is very good in Nigeria because the Nigerian cement industry is at a very good level,” Country Director of Lafarge Cement Wapco Plc, Guillame Roux, told Channels TV.
