In Nigeria, cement costs are like quicksilver. Despite not being an imported good, cement is one of the few consumer goods in the nation whose price fluctuates dramatically. And to make matters worse, the cost isn’t uniform across the nation. For instance, prices in Lagos would differ from what is available in Kano. And because of this, finding the current cement price in Nigeria might be confusing, especially if you use the Internet to do your research.

In light of the foregoing, we made the decision to create this post, which lists the current pricing of the major brands of cement offered in Nigeria. Since we are aware that these costs fluctuate frequently, we will strive to update this website whenever market prices change. We want to provide correct information on the topic, thus we kindly ask for your help. Please get in touch with us or leave a comment below if you are aware of any new price changes that are not included on this page or if you have any more knowledge about the cement price in Nigeria.

In different regions of Nigeria, cement costs vary. Most of the time, Lagos’ prices—especially those in its more upscale neighborhoods—are a little bit more than those found elsewhere in the nation. In Lagos, a 50kg bag of cement may really cost N200 more than the average price for the commodity. You won’t likely receive a deal that is less than the average price in the market. If you’re in Lagos or any other area of the country where the cost of goods and services is often greater, always add roughly N200 to the current prices shown on this page to be safe.
