He stated that SON would continue to ensure that industrialists conformed to MANCAP.

While noting that it was not the intention of SON to stifle industrialisation, Odumodu warned that the organisation will not condone products that are not of specification or injurious to the health of the consumers.

He spoke during the presentation of Assessment Certificate No. 001623 and MANCAP NIS Logo Nos. CT-3930 and CT-3931 to Intermicrotel International Nigeria Limited, in Ilorin on Thursday.

The DG who was represented by Kwara State Head, SON, Mr. Adeshina Popoola urged consumers to inform SON of producers that are not adhering to standards.

In his words, “When we identify such defaulters, we close them down immediately.

”Once we confirm that the products are not up to the requirement of the standard, or the specification, we close them down immediately.

“If they are the cooperative types, we work with them, tell them what to do until they get it right. But if they are the ones that will want to remain recalcitrant, the law of the nation will deal with them.”
