An extremely new dimension of leadership for the industrialist. Yes, Abdul Samad Rabiu, the Chairman of BUA Cement Plc, has announced a share bonus gift, from his pool of shares, for employees of the company worth almost two billion Naira for their hardwork. And they really work hard when you look at the financials of this company. They hit Profit After Tax of N72.3billion in 2020, representing a 19.4% increase over the corresponding period in 2019. Well done Mr Rabiu.

By doing so, our core employees are better placed to benefit from BUA Cement’s future successes which they continue to help deliver,” Rabiu said.
