Director General and Chief Executive, Standards Organisation of Nigeria, SON Dr. Joseph Odumodu, has explained that its target is to reduce sub-standard products to 10 per cent by the end of this year.
According to him, it would therefore mean that the current level of 40 per cent remained unacceptable to the federal government hence the organisation would not rest on its oars to ensure that life danger products are adequately and decisively checked.
The DG, who stated this recently in Lagos at an expanded stakeholders’ seminar entitled, ‘Trade Facilitation via Automation of SON’s Services’ made it clear that all and sundry should embrace the change mantra, which the Buhari administration has been projecting.
He added that stakeholders must support President Buhari to eliminate and check financial leakages and corruption in both public and private sectors of the nation’s economy.
The SON boss described Nigeria Integrated Customs Information System, NICIS that the agency’s services and businesses have since been integrated as a, “Nigerian project that would enable us to transact businesses no matter where we are”.
He described NICIS as, “a system that no longer allows you to come to SON’s offices across the country to seek certification. What we as an organisation has done concerning developing trade portal and NICIS covers the following critical areas.
