In a separate development Ibeto Cement has also entered into a reverse merger with Century Petroleum, an oil and gas exploration company.
Ibeto Cement has operated a cement terminal in Port Harcourt since 2005. It is also renovating the former Nigercem plant in Nkalagu. It announced a $386 million contract with China’s Sinoma in late 2015 to build a cement plant in Enugu.
