President Muhammadu Buhari has applauded BUA Group for its strides in narrowing the gap between demand and supply of cement in the country.
The president spoke at the State House, Abuja, while receiving a delegation from BUA Group, led by the Chairman, Abdul-Samad Rabiu, which was on a thank you visit.
Buhari had in January visited Sokoto to inaugurate the Line 4 of BUA Cement, which would ensure further availability of cement, of which Nigeria suffers about three million tonnes deficit.
Rabiu had earlier told the president that the BUA Group was currently building more factories in two different parts of the country, which would contribute about six million additional tonnes to cement supply.
The BUA Group Chairman said the support of the president for Nigerian enterprise was unflinching, “and we are encouraged to add more value.
He further thanked the President for what he called his “forthrightness, vision, and passion for Nigeria.
