Judge decries influx of substandard products

President of the Court of Appeal, Justice Monica Dongban-Mensem addressing FCCPC team

The President of the Court of Appeal, Justice Monica Dongban-Mensem, has expressed displeasure over increasing influx of substandard products into Nigerian markets.

Justice Fongban-Mensem stated this when a delegation from the Federal Competition & Consumer Protection Commission, FCCPC, led by its Executive Chairman, Mr. Babatunde Irukera, visited her Chambers.

She decried that the country had become a dumping ground for junk and said there was need for strict enforcement of laws to ensure only genuine products were imported.

“I know that some people prefer to buy products made for use in Europe than the ones made for Nigeria. Unfortunately, some of our businessmen go out and ask that the minimum standard should be made and brought for us. So once you buy, you are on your own”. She noted.

Mr. Babatunde Irukera, said the purpose of the visit was to intimate the Court of Appeal about the operations of the commission.
