Eighty Per cent of Imported Goods Are Substandard

80 per cent of products imported into Nigeria from countries outside Africa are substandard, the African Organisation for Standardisation (ARSO) and the Standards Organisation of Nigeria (SON), have said.

This was disclosed by Director-General, SON and President of ARSO, Dr. Joseph Odumodu, 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 action of individuals who engaged in the influx of substandard goods into the nation’s market and the continent was deliberately carried out with the intent of undermining the African market and diminishing the value for money in the usage of such products.
