Nigeria: BUA Cement and Dangote have signed an agreement with the government to supply cement at a discounted rate for the construction of 300,000 homes under the government’s Mass Housing Programme, according to The Sun newspaper.

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo said that the producers have agreed to provide cement for this project at a ‘considerable’ discount, which he described as ‘very helpful.’ He added, “Also important is the job creation aspect of it. You have young men and women who are builders, architects and civil engineers working on this project. We are hoping that a lot of the other building materials will be made locally.”
