WAPCo has closed some of its plants. Production is now about 50% of capacity.

If some importers have stopped importing (perhaps because it is now uneconomic) and local producers are reducing capacity, this means there is something structurally wrong. It's not importation. Local producers have been increasing capacity recently so we we have a problem of overcapacity. How do they solve this? By becoming more efficient and reducing prices to stimulate demand. Or they can use the failed method of banning the "little" import or forcing all yam flour producers to include cement in it or embarking on an expensive road construction initiative using concrete.
The question still arises why is WAPCO, Ashaka and Unicem not complaining?

Good question. If supply exceeds demand, prices fall. But that is not happening. Why? Protecting (high) profit margins. Anti-trust?

Obviously not. There are structural issues involved. banning imports won't solve it. We predicted there will be over capacity, we just didn't know it would happen so soon.
So what happened to the plan to export excess production?

I ques by suspending production and keeping excess stock in stores and away from the market. I also understand from my cement dealer that transport cost, which keeps going up with the current fuel scarcity, is the factor keeping prices high.
