Nigeria: Lafarge Counsels Block Makers On Quality

Lafarge Cement WAPCO Nigeria Plc has advised block makers in the country to adhere to modern and international best practice in block making, in order to reduce danger of building collapse.

National Relationship Manager, Lafarge Cement, Mr. Ibrahim Zitta, said this in Lagos, at the Block Makers Forum, Ikotun Zone, organised by the company.

He outlined poor substandard sand crete block, quest for excessive profits, product knowledge inadequacy, poor supervision and regulation, wrong selection of materials, poor workmanship and use of non-professionals to be responsible for building collapse.
