By Ray Ugochukwu
The Standards Organisation of Nigeria (SON) says it is making frantic efforts to return to the seaports as a way of preempting unwholesome goods into the country.
Mallam Salim Farouk, Director General, SON, disclosed this Monday in Amuwo-Odofin, Lagos.
Farouk made this known when he visited the agency’s warehouse to showcase to the media some unwholesome goods recently seized by the organization.
The DG explained that that frantic efforts were being made through relevant quarters to return SON to the ports from where it was exited in the last administration.
Meanwhile, over seven containers of compromised tyres were showcased to media men by the SON boss, who said they portended grave danger for use. He added that because the tyres had been squeezed five together, their quality had been compromised.
The renowned pharmacist informed that as a result of the squeezing, the items that should have been come I in five containers now came in only one. He said the attempt by their owners to save cost had made nonsense of the quality of the tyres.
He made it clear that the agency would not like such to be allowed into the Nigerian market, hence they were seized.
