HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES COMMITTEE THREATENS ARREST OF MANAGEMENT OF DANGOTE CEMENT                                                                                           10-07-24

By Sadiq Aminu                                                                 The House of Representatives Joint Committee on the arbitrary increase in the price of cement has threatened to arrest the management of Dangote Cement if it fails to appear at its next hearing.

This followed the absence of officials of the cement company during a hearing to address the problem of cement increase in the country.
The Chairman of the Committee, Jonathan Gaza, while advocating for the downward review of cement prices, expressed worry over the increase in cement prices and the untold hardships it has brought upon many Nigerians.
“On Dangote my ruling is simple. The laws have given us the necessary powers but we owe you a duty of care. We are going to give you one more chance. We are going to communicate a date.

“Failure to comply with that date, a subpoena will be issued, a warrant of arrest will be given for you to cause appearance before the National Assembly, no single individual is bigger than the parliament of his country.
No single Nigerian is bigger than the National Assembly,”

The Committee directed the Cement Manufacturers Association of Nigeria and the Central Bank of Nigeria to make appearances before the committee in the next two weeks.
He called for deliberate measures necessary to address the situation for the benefits of the people.
The Committee noted that manufacturers are more concerned about making profits without any sense of empathy for the citizens.
