Abuja - The House of Representatives adhoc committee set up to investigate the composition and pigmentation of cement (cement quality) in Nigeria has criticized the Standards Organisation of Nigeria (SON) for failing to conduct due process before announcing new cement grade in the country.
The committee in its report to the whole House berated SON for going ahead to announce a new grading/categorisation of cement and uses in the Nigerian market place when the committee was still conducting a public hearing on the matter, reports The Sun.

They noted that investigation by relevant independent professional bodies is yet to link building collapse in the country to substandard cement.
