The Minister of Works, David Umahi has summoned major cement manufacturers to a meeting over the rising cost of cement.

He expressed worry that, despite huge patronage by road and housing contractors, the cost of the product was rising at an astronomical rate.

A statement signed by the Minister’s Special Adviser (Media), Orji Uchenna Orji today in Abuja said the meeting will hold on Monday.

The Minister while acknowledging the fact that the manufacturers do have their challenges, stated that findings reveal that the disparity between ex-factory price and market price is wide.

He said the situation must be looked into with a view to forging a common front to solve the issues at hand.
