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 who spoke when a delegation from the Federal Competition & Consumer Protection Commission, FCCPC, led by its Executive Chairman, Mr. Babatunde Irukera, paid her a courtesy visit at her Chambers, said it was disheartening that the country had become a dumping ground for junks.
Justice Dongban-Mensem said there was need for strict enforcement of existing laws to ensure that products brought into the country were of good standards.
“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.
On his part, the Chairman of FCCPC, Mr. Babatunde Irukera, said the purpose of the visit was to intimate the Court of Appeal with the operations of the Commission.
“One of our more urgent and crucial objectives is a knowledge sharing opportunity where we present more in-depth analysis of the FCCPA through knowledgeable faculty working with and through the National Judicial Council, and learning from this senior bench too, what the judicial considerations are in dispute resolution, as well as how best to present questions of law for the fairest and most meaningful outcomes and disposition”,
