“With the deal, Nigerians in need of seamless supply of cement from Dangote can now place [an] order and pay online and wait for the delivery in record time from any of Dangote’s nearest cement plants,” said Chux Nogbolu, Key Account Director at Dangote Cement.

The new initiative also aims to reduce online scams, Mogbolu added. “Dangote Cement decided to work with Jumia Nigeria based on its credibility and excellent performance over the years in online shopping management.”

Orders will be taken in batches of 300, 600, and 900 bags – although this may be increased depending on demand, Mogbolu continued. The company would also consider rolling out the scheme to over cities, “depending on the level of demand and performance of the new deal.”
