If the Federal Government does not take steps to force down the price of cement by before Tuesday, September 20, bricklayers under the aegis of Lagos State Bricklayers Association, will on Monday, September 26, embark on a rally to press home their demand for a reduction in the price of the product, its President, Deacon Abel Olukayode, has warned.
He told The Nation that the decision to hold the rally was the decision of the state executives of Lagos State Bricklayers Association at a meeting on September 8 in Akesan, Lagos.
Cement price, recently rose from N1,600 to between N2, 000 and N2, 600 per bag. This did not go down well with bricklayers, with Olukayode calling on the Federal Government to intervene to reduce the price, or the association’s over 500 members would hold a rally.
