Mr Pius Eze, a dealer at Timber market attributed the price fall to availability of the commodity in the market.
“For now Dangote cement is almost everywhere in the market and the price has reduced against what it used to be some months back.
“Before now, the price of cement was high and it was scarce, some dealers find it difficult to buy and sell due to its scarcity,” Eze said.
Mr Joseph Ogbu, a dealer at Garki market, corroborated the claim, saying however, that the price of cement was fluctuating in most markets.
“Today, it is sold for between N2,800 and N3,000 per bag and I pray it continues to be available,”Ogbue said.
However, a building contractor, Mr Innocent Uwakwe, said that the price fluctuation has been the factor making houses expensive in Nigeria.
