SON Confiscates Substandard Products Worth N4bn

The Director-General of Standards Organisation of Nigeria (SON), Dr Joseph Odumodu, has said that the agency has seized substandard products worth four billion naira since the beginning of the year.

Odumodu who made the disclosure in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja on Sunday, said that in September, the agency seized substandard telephone sets worth N350 million.

“In the last three days, we have confiscated over N350 million worth of telephone sets that are substandard.

“If I add that to the number I have earlier, we have a number of about four billion naira this year alone.

“I tell you that is not a thing of joy because all these products were imported, paid for with genuine dollars and would be destroyed and they are Nigerian money,’’ he said.
