Rukiyat Abdullahi, a retailer in Kubwa, told the platform that the price has dropped to N7800 for Dangote while BUA is traded at N11,000 per bag.

She said, “Dangote is now N7,800 while BUA is N11,000 per bag from N10,000 and 15,000 it was sold weeks ago.”

Similarly, at Gwarimpa, a retailer, Yinka Adebayo, confirmed that the cement price has dropped compared to what it was sold weeks ago.
