House of Representatives Warn Cement Manufacturers Against Further Refusal to Appear Before It

The House of Representatives has warned the Cement Manufacturers Association of Nigeria, CMAN, against refusing to honor its invitation over an arbitrary increase in the price of cement. Gaza Gbwefi, the Chairman, House Joint Committee on the Arbitrary Increase in the Price of Cement, said this in Abuja yesterday.

He said the association should desist from using frivolous court injunctions to interfere with the ongoing investigation on the arbitrary increase in the price of cement in the country. He further said the persistent absence of the cement manufacturers after being summoned twice was an affront to the powers of the National Assembly.

Gaza lambasted representatives of the CEO of the Federal Competition and Consumer Protection Commission, Boladale Adeyinka for not doing enough to protect the consumers of cement in line with the agency’s establishment Act.

He also asked the agency to go back and rework and represent the four paged document submitted to the house on the investigations of cement price increase.
