One of Africa’s most popular cement companies, Dangote Cement, has called the attention of members of the public to a fake promotion advert in circulation.

According to the organisation, the advert which has been making the rounds on social media platforms featured on the cloned cover pages of newspapers such as The Punch, Sunday Sun, Nigerian Tribune, and The Nation.

According to a statement by Dangote Cement and signed by Anthony Chiejina, Group Chief Branding & Communications Officer, Dangote Industries Limited (DIL), the advert also featured a picture of the company’s Group President and some bags of cement.

In the statement sent to www.theoctopusnews.com, the organisation said, “these PROMO stories and pictures, which were super-imposed (photoshopped) on the front pages of the identified newspaper publications, are false and meant to mislead unsuspecting members of the public, it is a scam.”

In addition, the statement said that no decision had been taken on any cement promo for the year 2022 by Dangote Cement Plc, and where such is done there would be a strict procedure to convey such an important marketing decision to the regulatory authorities, customers, and the public across the country.

 

Thus, Dangote Cement urged the public to disregard and totally ignore these fake promo advert images, to avoid losing their funds to fraudsters, while also calling on regulatory authorities and law enforcement agencies to investigate bank account details provided by the scammers for these illegal transactions.
