Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), Anambra State command, has promised to partner the Standards Organisation of Nigeria (SON) to combat the spread of substandard products in the state.
This was contained in a statement issued by the State Command Spokesperson, Okadigbo Edwin, which was made available to Tribune Online in Awka, on Tuesday.
He said the NSCDC State Commandant, Mr David Bille stated this in Awka while receiving the Anambra State Coordinator of SON, Engr Olalekan Omoniyi on Tuesday.
According to Bille, NSCDC appreciated the enforcement and compliance roles being played by SON in quality control and verification of products and promised to partner it for effective control.
He said SON actions have really reduced the spread of substandard products in the state and the country, thereby improving the quality and standards of goods people consume.
Earlier in his remark, the SON Coordinator, Anambra state command said the courtesy visit was necessitated on the need for the two agencies to sustain the existing relationship towards getting rid of fake and substandard products in the State.
According to him, SON cannot do the works alone, hence the need to involve the NSCDC.
He appealed for the NSCDC intelligence report towards getting the source and root of unwanted products across the state.
