President Muhammadu Buhari has commended the BUA Group for its strides in narrowing the gap between demand and supply of cement in the country. 

He gave the commendation Friday at the State House, Abuja, while receiving a delegation of BUA Group, led by the chairman, Abdul Samad Rabiu, which was on a thank-you visit. 

Presidential spokesman, Femi Adesina, in a statement recalled that President Buhari had last month visited Sokoto to inaugurate Line 4 of BUA Cement, which would ensure further availability of cement, of which Nigeria suffers about three million tonnes deficit. 

According to the statement, Rabiu said the BUA Group had started building more factories in two different parts of the country, which would contribute about six million additional tonnes to cement supply. 

“Your presence at the commissioning of our Line 4 sends a strong message of commitment to the industrialisation of our country.

“Like you often say, we need to add value to what we produce with locally sourced raw materials, and we remain committed to it. 

“We are ready to work with the federal government and all other relevant stakeholders. The consistent effort of the government in supporting local capacity has helped us a great deal,” Rabiu was quoted by the statement.
