Kwara: SON Trains Stakeholders On Distribution Of Certified Products  

Some stakeholders have been trained  on ways to engage in standardised goods and distribution of certified products appropriately by the Standard Organisation of Nigeria (SON) in Ilorin 

The state coordinator of the organisation, Oyebola Ayeni disclosed this on Wednesday, saying that the aim of the training is to engage stakeholders and educate and equip them on how to distribute their products appropriately.

According to Ayeni, the organisation is aware of some of the inadequacies in the way some stakeholders carry out their business activities against the rules and regulations governing standard corporate practices.

“Due to these inadequacies of labelling, certification and presentation of substandard products, there is a need for such ignorance to be addressed by sensitising stakeholders and engaging them.

“Educate them in the knowledge of product labelling in order to identify the adequate product they need to buy in the open market.

“This is to alert them not to be involved in any nefarious activities that will direct substandard products to the consumers,” he said.

Hajiya Rabiat Abiola, the Guest Speaker advised the participants to get themselves familiar with the product liability law, saying the product liability law guides manufacturers, distributors, suppliers and retailers of goods and services.

Abiola added that Nigerians have every right to hold stakeholders responsible and legally sue them for distributing substandard products in the market.
