With an estimated market potential of cement consumption of running over 50 million metric tons per annum, the structure behind the growth in the sector could be traced to the cement market where Nigeria’s cement producers and investors alike are spearheading expansion and growth of the country cement sector.

A lower tax rate of 15.7 per cent compared with 31.8 per cent in first quarter 2012 resulted in profit after tax growing faster than profit before tax, the sales grew 29 per cent  quarter on quarter q/q, while profit before tax and profit after tax advanced by 46 per cent and 56 per cent q/q respectively.

World’s Largest Dam To Provide Electricity For 500 Million African Homes

Work will start in October 2015, on the world’s biggest hydroelectric dam in the Democratic Republic of Congo after talks between DR Congo and international officials.
Sunday’s meeting on the proposed Inga dam on the Congo river also involved multilateral lending institutions.
According to a statement, the “foundation stone will be laid in October 2015.”
“With a production of 40,000 megawatts, the Grand Inga project will eventually provide electricity to half the African continent,” it said.
This is less than half of the DR Congo’s total hydropower resources, which the World Bank estimates at 100,000 megawatts.
World Bank estimates suggest that if completed and running at full capacity, the complex could provide energy to up to 500 million African households.
