If you live in Lagos, Abuja or Port Harcourt, you can now purchase Dangote Cement on Jumia online store and have it delivered to you.

This comes after Jumia announced a partnership with Dangote Cement to distribute the products on its platform.

Jumia Nigeria’s CEO Juliet Anammah told a press conference in Lagos on Monday that the partnership with Dangote Cement was a “strategic decision because this was the perfect time to build”.

Key Account Director of Dangote Cement, Mr Mogbolu Chux, was also quoted as describing the collaboration with Jumia as a partnership for life.

He said the partnership would enable customers to purchase bags of cement for as low as 2,500 Naira and have it delivered within 48 hours from the time of placing an order.

He gave the minimum quantity of cement that could be bought at once as 300 bags (750,000 Naira), adding that as the demand increased, the quantity would reduce.

“Dangote Cement decided to work with Jumia Nigeria based on its credibility and excellent performance over the years in online shopping management”, he said.

He added that “the new initiative would help arrest the scams perpetrated by online fraudsters who deceived the people by asking them to come and purchase Dangote Cement at 1000 Naira per bag”.
