To address building collapse in Nigeria, BUA Cement, a subsidiary of BUA Group has enlightened block and concrete makers on how to apply the right mix of cement with other components to ensure only standard blocks and concretes are produced.

The one-day workshop tagged, “Optimizing cement usage to achieve better quality and yield of blocks” was organized in collaboration with the Modern Skills Training Centre of the Industrial Training Fund (ITF) and the Standard Organization of Nigeria (SON) in Port Harcourt.

Speaking at the workshop, the General Manager Sales, BUA Cement Obu Plant, Nasiru Ladan, assured stakeholders on the continuous production of high quality cement by BUA which will help achieve better quality of blocks and other products.

Ladan said: “Port Harcourt has always been our home. We started here as a brand and we became popular strictly because of the quality of our product. BUA Cement is something you have known all this while and we thank you for your patronage.

“The purpose of this workshop is to rub minds, discuss, agree and come up with a better knowledge on how to get the best out of the cement we are using. As you know, it is one thing to have good cement; it is another thing to mix it in combination with other materials”, he added.

Ladan explained that with the issue of building collapse in Nigeria, various researches show it is as a result of either not using the right cement or bad mix.

So, we are here to let the block makers understand the right mix of cement with the right materials to produce the highest quality blocks for public use.
