Nigeria: Cement Controversy in House

[Vanguard]The House of Representatives has endorsed the 42.5 mpa cement grade as the minimum in the Nigerian market. The House thereby bars the 32.5 grade which the Standards Organisation of Nigeria (SON) had allowed to be produced and sold but limited to plastering jobs only. Following from the House Committee's surveys and analysis, the 32.5 grade poses greater danger to largely uninformed Nigerians than the 42.5 grade.
