No going back on war against fake products, SON declares

The Standards Organisation of Nigeria (SON), has reiterated that the ongoing war against fake and substandard products in the country would be sustained until every nook and cranny of the nation has been rid of the menace.

The Head of  Ekiti State office of the agency, Mrs Sarah Idowu,  said  this  in Ado Ekiti, at the weekend,  at a prayer session organised by friends to mourn the passage of her father, Prophet Michael Salawu, aged 75.

Idowu decried rising cases of fake products across Nigeria, despite what she said was a “relentless war against same by the agency and others similar to it.”

According to her, it was unfortunate that some people could deliberately choose to be specialists in the manufacturing and distribution of killer goods to fellow humans in the name of “get-rich quick syndrome.”

She  said that the SON, Ekiti State office, under her, had mapped-out fresh strategies capable of unveiling the identities as well as hideouts of operation of all those involved in the nefarious activity of circulating items classified as fake and bring them to book.

She told the gathering that her late  father played significant role in ensuring that his children reached acceptable social status in life,  adding  he would be buried at his Ibadan residence on September 30, after service of songs and Christian wake-keep to be presided over by the Christ Apostolic Church Mission.
