BUA Cement, a subsidiary of BUA Group, it had trained block and concrete makers on using the right mix of cement with other components, to guarantee high standard of block and concrete.

Mr O’tega Ogra, Head, Corporate Communication, BUA Group, on Tuesday said in Lagos, said the essence of using the right mix of cement with other component was to reduce building collapse in the country.

He said the workshop was organised in collaboration with the Modern Skills Training Centre of the Industrial Training Fund (ITF) and the Standard Organisation of Nigeria (SON).

Nasiru Ladan, General Manager, Sales and Marketing, BUA (Obu) Cement, said the workshop was part of the company’s efforts to address poor mix of quality cement to reduce the incidence of collapsed buildings across the country.

‘If the quality of the cement is good and the other materials you are using are not in the right proportion, you are likely to end up with a product that is substandard.

“So the importance of this meeting is for us to rub minds and exchange ideas on how to achieve the best quality of whatever product we are producing.

“Most cases of collapsed building have been attributed to either the use of poor quality product or no adherence to quality standard towards the use of the right mix,” he said.

Ladan appreciated the stakeholders for their patronage of BUA Cement and restated the company’s commitment to continuous production of high quality cement that would enhance the standard of the building industry.

On her part, the Training Manager, Modern Skills Training Centre, ITF, Mrs Ayodele Shodunke, urged block makers to utilise the knowledge acquired during the training to change the narrative of poor quality blocks.

She said ITF was committed to equipping block makers with relevant modern skills that would impact positively on building materials.

Chairman, Abuja Concrete Manufacturers of Nigeria, Comrade Uzor George-Tiga, commended BUA Cement for the life-changing programme and described it as an eye opener which would strengthen activities around their businesses. (NAN)
