Foreign products constitute 80% of counterfeits in Africa —SON


LAGOS—The African Organisation for Standardisation, ARSO and the Standards Organisation of Nigeria, SON, yesterday disclosed that products imported from countries outside Africa constitute over 80 per cent of substandard goods found in markets in Nigeria and other parts of Africa.

The Director-General, SON and President of ARSO, Dr. Joseph Odumodu, made this known during the stakeholders launch to announce a three-day expo for Chief Executive Officers, CEOs, of all African National Standards Bodies, NSBs, slated to hold this month in Abuja.

Odumodu, lamented that the influx of the substandard goods into the nation’s market and the continent was deliberately carried out by people intent on undermining the African market and diminishing the value for money in the usage of such products.
