Cement distributors and block makers in southeast Nigeria have urged the regula­tory authorities not to back down on the recently-reviewed quality standard and grading of cement. They called on government to sanction product manufacturers that fail to comply within the stipu­lated period of time.

The distributors, however, commended Dangote Cement for complying, saying it has shown that it has the interest of its customers at heart and “that everything is not all about profit to the detriment of the well-being of the people." They lauded the ingenuity of the management of Dangote Cement for having started the production of the 3X 42.5 high grade of cement even before the government came out with the quality review.
