Head, Consumer Protection Council, Lagos, Joshua Yakubu said consumers should get value for their money. Consumers should get enough information before buying a product to enable its optimal usage.
In his remarks, Director Laboratory Service, Standard Organization of Nigeria, Louis Njoku said we are pained by lots of substandard products in the economy. Consumers buy fake phones that can only contribute negatively to their health.
Recently SON has reviewed its Act which has the powers to arrest substandard goods for prosecution. We urge Tecno to start thinking of producing phones in Nigeria. SON supports any genuine company that does the right thing following instruction and compliance.
