BUA Cement sellers reveal why prices are still high
BUA reveals reason for price slash The company announced the decision after BUA Cement founder Abdul Samad Rabiu visited President Bola Tinubu on September 16, 2023.
According to the statement by the company announcing the price slash, the move is part of its ongoing effort to boost its production capacity to 17 million metric tonnes per annum before the end of 2023.
Findings reveal that four weeks after, the price of BUA Cement has remained unchanged and is still sold above N5,000 in some depots in Lagos and Ogun states. Retailers lament the high cost of transportation TheCable reports that some retailers confirmed that the company sells the cement at N3,500 at its factory in Benin but that the sellers said they have to visit the site to get the product at the discounted price.
A BUA representative was reportedly quoted as saying that the company needs more trucks to distribute its products. Hence, the retailers must hire a truck for N1,000 per bag, discouraging them. The retailers say they partner to hire trucks, but the N1,000 per bag is a significant discouragement, making them resort to selling other brands. They say hiring trucks from other companies, such as Dangote, could create such problems as confiscation if caught, among others. They stated that the cost of freighting the product from the depots to their retail sites would still make it sell at the old price.
