The Standard Organisation of Nigeria, (SON), has disclosed that the agency is prosecuting no fewer than 20 companies in connection with substandard products in court adding that many offenders have been convicted in the recent time.
The agency added that it had refused to shutdown some companies with the consideration that other legitimate activities are also going on within their premises noting that such action may affect their workforce and result into unemployment.
It would be recalled that allegations of poor conducts was leveled on SON by the Galvanised Iron and Steel Manufacturers Association, (GISMA) and consequently alerted the federal government to within 30 days solve the problem or its members would sack 20, 000 workers nationwide.
