Cement prices hit new high

Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that Nigerians had groaned as cement prices hit new high in six days.

Findings show that in many parts of the country, the price of building materials has recently been steadily rising from N6,000 to N6,500 to over N9,000.

The Guardian reported that the cement price rose to N8,000 in Benue state as many builders were unaware of the sudden price change.

The periodic increase in the product's price has made retailers halt sales, fearing that manufacturers might increase prices soon.
