The Standards Organisation of Nigeria’s battle against the influx and circulation of substandard products has received the backing of Emir of Kano Muhammadu Sanusi II.
He expressed his support when he received the SON management in Kano, led by the State Coordinator Yahaya Bukar.
The Emir described the SON responsibility as very tasking, particularly in relation to the fight against the influx, storage and distribution of substandard products.
He assured the SON delegation of the full support of his council to assist the organisation to win the war.
Bukar thanked the emir, the Emirate Council, the government and people of Kano State for their support to SON since its establishment in the state in 1988.
The SON State Coordinator acknowledged the valuable contributions of the Royal Father to the realisation of the SON offshore conformity assessment programme, SONCAP aimed at checkmating the influx of substandard products into Nigeria, as the then Governor of Central Bank, under the Comprehensive Import Supervision Scheme (CISS).
He reiterated the determination of SON to assist micro, small and medium enterprises in Kano State grow, through the diligent implementation of the Mandatory Conformity Assessment Programme (MANCAP) designed to promote the competitiveness of all made-in-Nigeria products.
This, according to him, will also promote consumer safety while ensuring that they get value for their hard earned money expended on products.
He highlighted the stakeholders’ sensitisation efforts being carried out in the state by SON in markets, colleges, mosques and churches in addition to daily inspection visits to factories.
Bukar briefed the royal father on SON consumer complaints resolution and standards enforcement activities in the state, all aimed at ensuring consumer satisfaction and safety through substantial reduction in the volume of substandard products in circulation.
The historic visit was rounded off with the presentation of SON stickers, car hangers and wall clocks to Emir Sanusi II on behalf of the Director-General, Mr. Osita Aboloma.
