SON to deepen stan­dard­i­s­a­tion through pub­lic cam­paigns

Daily Trust - - BRAND EQUITY - By John Iy­ongo

Stan­dards Or­gan­i­sa­tion of Nige­ria (SON) is to deepen the fight against fake and sub­stan­dard prod­ucts through en­light­en­ment cam­paigns to be an­chored by its re­gional of­fices in the six geopo­lit­i­cal zones.

The spokesper­son of SON and spe­cial as­sis­tant to the act­ing di­rec­tor-gen­eral, Ril­wan Fashina Bola, dis­closed this last week, in Abuja. He said that the SON would em­bark on the cam­paign to ed­u­cate the na­tion on the con­tents of the SON Act 2015. He said that while there were some ad­min­is­tra­tive bot­tle­necks in the fight against stan­dard­i­s­a­tion, like the pol­icy of the last ad­min­is­tra­tion that asked SON in­spec­tors to leave the ports, the or­gan­i­sa­tion was step­ping up its ef­forts to fight sabo­teurs on all fronts. He en­joined Nige­ri­ans to co­op­er­ate with the or­gan­i­sa­tion and vol­un­teer in­for­ma­tion that could help its op­er­a­tion.

He said that the or­gan­i­sa­tion was strength­en­ing its op­er­a­tion in the six geopo­lit­i­cal zones to sus­tain the gains of fight against fake and sub­stan­dard prod­ucts.
