Dzata Cement won’t sell for GHc30.00 – Bridget Otoo


Dzata Cement won’t sell for GHc30.00 – Bridget Otoo.

A renowned freelance journalist and women’s empowerment advocate, Bridget Otoo has backtracked over claims saying Dzata Cement will be sold for GHc30.00 per bag.

According to her, the Dzata bag of cement will not sell for GHc30.00 but the official price will be out once the factory starts manufacturing the product.

She disclosed that no manufacturer will risk his resources to produce cement for less than GHc40.00 a bag in Ghana.

“Dzata cement is not GHc30.00. The original price will come out once production begins so people should get that perception off their heads.

No company will sell cement for less than GHc40.00 in Ghana since it requires a lot before manufacturing is done”, she wrote on her facebook page.

Dzata cement is fully owned by Ibrahim Mahama who is the founder of Engineers and Planners Company LTD.

Construction of the cement manufacturing plant began in 2011, a decade ago with the core aim of operating in 2018, three years ago, but that could not materialise due to delays in meeting expected deadlines.

The Tema-based plant’s aim was to beat down the increasing prices of cement in the country to make it more affordable for the ordinary Ghanaian.

In view of that, people had erroneously projected that the cost of Dzata cement may fall within the GHc30-35 range per bag.

Social media has since been inundated with images of the product with different price ranges as stated above, but Bridget Otoo has ravished those claims saying that cannot happen in Ghana; not at this time.

She believes no cement manufacturer or company can sell cement below GHc40.00 let alone GHc30.00 as speculated, knowing the cost of production of the product is very high in this part of the world.

The company is said to have a 2.6 million ton production capacity per annum, and the official prices for the cement product will come out as soon as production begins.
