Cement Quality and Building Collapse


[This Day]The confidence of many Nigerians has been shaken by the rising frequency of building collapse across the nation. A coalition of civil society groups and professional bodies believes, even if there is no compelling evidence yet, that poor quality cement is responsible for the increasing menace. The coalition is therefore calling on the relevant authorities to make 42.5 grade of cement the standard product in Nigeria instead of the lower grade 32.5, mostly patronised by builders.
