SON to crack down on fake products producers


The Standards Organisation of Nigeria (SON) has promised hard times for manufacturers and importers of fake and substandard products.

The agency hoped to tackle the menace with the introduction of Product

Authentication Mark (PAM) on all products manufactured in the country and those due for importation.

SON’s Director General, Mr. Osita Aboloma, spoke in Ado-Ekiti, the Ekiti State capital, at a training workshop on: The Fundamentals of International Standards Organisation (ISO) 9001-2015 for stakeholders in the Southwest.

Aboloma, who was represented by Southwest’s Regional Coordinator of the agency, Mrs. Oyenike Owoyele, said no efforts would be spared at sanitising Nigerian markets.

The SON chief warned that anyone caught would be made to regret his or her action through seizures, destruction or outright closure and blacklisting of the erring manufacturing company.

SON’s Head of Ekiti State Office, Mr. Ayeni Feyisayo, reiterated the commitment of the agency to rid the Nigerian markets of undesirable products.
