Prof. Yemi Osinbajo at the opening session of “Open-Day with MSMEs” organised by the Standards Organisation of Nigeria (SON) tasked Nigerian business owners to step-up the quality of their products.
According to the Vice President,
“This is particularly important as we seek to expand our exports to the rest of Africa in the African Continental Free Trade Area, and indeed to the rest of the world”
“Improving product quality is integral to market entry and market share. Our failure to adhere to international standards for product quality will continue to limit the market acceptability of our products and poses the risk of rejection and non-acceptance of ‘Made in Nigeria’ products at home and abroad”.
“We are fully aware that Nigeria’s aspirations for a highly competitive economy will remain unfulfilled if we do not create a business environment that is conducive for your businesses to thrive. Among other factors, a friendly business environment engenders productivity while ensuring that products and services meet the highest standards.”
