The price of cement in Nigeria

Getting the lowest priced cement is one of the key factors that can lower the overall cost of a building project. The price of cement in Nigeria keeps on fluctuating due to some different factors. These factors that include: High maintenance costs of manufacturing machines, high distribution costs of the product, erratic power supply which calls for expensive alternative power sources and the ever changing government policies; put manufacturers in tough spots when it comes to pricing their products.

Nigeria’s dominant cement manufacturers and their market share

In recent times the dominant cement manufacturers have been accused of raising rises indiscriminately causing construction activity to slow. Efforts by government to curb the trend have not borne fruit. The thre key payers are:

  1. If Ibeto Cement is selling, the cement price would come down. But they allowed only Dangote to do the business. Injustice in high places. Only Dangote is allowed to sell salt, sugar, cement, now fuel. INJUSTICE MAKES NIGERIANS TO SUFFER FOR NOTHING.

  2. Comment: we Nigerians we suppose vote good leader we went an vote non educated person who even don’t know what is demand. buhari u can kill us for Nigerian because is our father land we believe in God all things shall come to pass

  3. I think every projects involving cement utilization should stop or suspend their various projects.. a bag of cement price ranging from 3,500 to 4,900 is CRAZY. Please spread the word, common man can’t build house roof over his head, where is Nigeria heading under PMB. Perhaps, Nigeria as a country should be sold to countries that can manage things appropriately. No offence, I love my country, Nigeria!

  4. Why are we treat each other this way, remember we are still the same and our government in not favouring to us at all. how can a bag of cement rise to this extent that can’t even affordable a poor people to cover up their privacy/house.

  5. Giant of Africa and our so called richest man in Africa is selling per bag 3600 to 4000,and of which the major raw materials using is gotten from Nigeria,precisely in kogi state which is cool.the man should do something about.if economy grow is in the hands of dangote,bcos he is the one making this difficult in this country in terms of production of cement

  6. This government has fail woefully

    Nigerians can no long afford cement to build house again

  7. A bag of cement should be sold in Nigeria 1,000 or 1,700 . The increase of materials in Nigeria is too much.

  8. Comment: Where are we going in this country, things are getting worst everyday, No security, cement 4300! (Osun) The cost for foods is unbearable, the sofferness is too much. Government do something!! God have mercy on Nigeria.

  9. A bag of cement in Nigeria is not supposed to be more than #1000 bcos the major raw material needed for cement production is gotten here and produced here. Why have they deliberately increased the price to rape Nigerian of the little/everything they have in the name of buying cement. And the government is not even doing anything about it. This is cruelty and wickedness of the highest order.

  10. The price per bag of a cement in my state(Bauchi)is #3,500.00.. However the incumbent adminstratn should duely do somethng to cut the price off..

  11. We hav nothing doing bcs of cus of Comment price: there should reduce the price, we the youth we ar surring.

  12. When a Wolf succeeded in getting monopoly, he will devour as many as he likes. Dangote operates an extremely wicked business model, he had raped Nigerians in many fronts. The near monopoly that he had in Cement, Sugar, salt & possibly refined petroleum products ( in few months time) made him to sell these items sometimes with up to 200 percent profit. He want to be the first African to own a fortune 500 Company and believes that it is only through this great wickedness that it can be possible. Cement for example is being sold at less than 2000 Naira in most countries of the world, whereas Nigerians are paying through noses for this essential commodities.
    With no implementable anti trust or Competition laws Nigeria, Dangote with his government connections​ is still plotting to monopolize more essential commodities by having them banned, so that he can further exploit Nigerians..

  13. The above prices are not here in Borno state the real price is N4,900 per bag. So i am appealing to the Government to luck into the situation not only the cement

  17. Comment: The prices here are not true. They sale here @ Ewekoro where we have two near by cement factories @ #4000 to #45650 per bag. This administration lacks conscience if not, price regulations could have helped D situation.
