Nigeria’s cable industry wants inferior product out
An article published on Leadership speaks of The Cable Manufacturers Association of Nigeria (CAMA) and its call on the federal government to allow the Standards Organisation of Nigeria (SON) to destroy facilities found to be housing sub-standard cable infrastructure.
The publication quotes CAMA’s National President, Ifeanyi Uzodike, as saying that whilst the Association appreciated the efforts of the Organisation, the government would need to provide sufficient support to the Agency if sub-standard cable products are to be removed from the market.
Uzodike is reported to have told Leadership about other measures that could be considered include the prosecution of custom officials who are found to have cleared cable goods of questionable quality.
According to Uzodike this infrastructure not only represents a threat to the lives of people and physical property, it also impacts the country’s image.
