The Board members and top officials of the Lagos State Consumer Protection Agency (LASCOPA) on Friday met with traders in Computer Village, Ikeja and its environs during a sensitisation campaign to encourage them to shun the manufacture and sale of unwholesome Smart products.
The campaign was part of activities scheduled by LASCOPA to celebrate the 2019 Consumer Rights Day, themed “Trusted Smart Products” and held on 15th of March annually.
The Agency’s Board Chairman, Mrs. Funmi Falana, and its General Manager, Mrs. Kemi Olugbode led the campaign which took off at LASCOPA office along Allen Avenue through Awolowo Road to the Computer Village in Ikeja.
Falana said that the occasion is held worldwide to celebrate consumers and appreciate their roles in the entire marketing chain while drawing attention to the need for protection of consumer rights and redress whenever their rights are infringed upon.
She assured Lagosians that LASCOPA will continue to explore every means of creating adequate awareness about its activities as well as help consumers resolve issues through its Complaints and Mediation Directorate.
The Chairman reaffirmed that the establishment of the Agency was a clear indication that the State Government had a strong desire to maintain international standards in the quality of goods and services purchased by consumers.
While explaining the activities of the Agency, the General Manager, Mrs. Olugbode said that LASCOPA would continue to ensure the safety, satisfaction and protection of consumers from the effects of harmful products or services.
Olugbode also promised that the Agency would continue to seek ways and means of eliminating hazardous and sub-standard products from Lagos markets in conjunction with other relevant stakeholders.
The President of Computer & Allied Products Dealers Associations of Nigeria (CAMPDAN), Mr. Ahmed Ojikutu commended the Agency for the sensitisation initiative, noting the need for equity and fairness in business dealings just as he promised to support the Agency so that consumers continue to get value for their money.
