The Federal government has said cement manufacturers are not doing enough to stem the rising cost of cement in the country.


Special adviser on media to the minister of housing and urban development, Mark Chieshe, has said that his principal, Ahmed Dangiwa, said this when he summoned cement manufacturers to a meeting at the ministry’s headquarters in Abuja, on tuesday


Dangiwa expressed displeasure over the steady, recurring and alarming increase in the prices of cement and other building materials, and accused the manufacturers of hiding behind unstable FOREX to inflict hardship on Nigerians.


He also said the incessant hike has overtaken the country in the past few months, which has seen the price rise by over 100 percent, from N5,500 a few months ago to over N10,000 today.
