The Delta State government has said that it will no longer tolerate a situation where consumers are coerced into accepting goods and services that are substandard.
Commissioner for Commerce and Industry and Chairman of the Delta State Committee on Consumer Protection, Chief (Barr.), Mrs. Mary Iyasere, stated this on Sunday when she led members of the committee to visit some eateries in continuation of their advocacy visits in Asaba.
The commissioner, who was represented by the Secretary of the committee, Mr. Felix Oseji, stated that it was in its bid to ensure that consumers were not short-changed, saying that the state Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa, inaugurated the state consumer protection committee.
The commissioner for Commerce and Industry revealed that the committee was empowered by law to ensure that rights of consumers were protected and defaulters of the law made to face the wrath of the law to serve as deterrent to others who indulge in unwholesome activities.
Barrister Iyasere advised the fast food operators to always keep their environment clean and ensure that they employ only those who are free of contagious diseases.
The operators of the places visited, who spoke through representatives, promised that they would abide with what they have been told so as not to run foul of the law, disclosing that they have met with most of the conditions reeled out by the committee members and promised to do all within their power to operate in accordance with the law.
The Eateries visited were Macdons, Thamosking, Ultimate Taste, Mr. Biggs, Sizzlers, Asaba Mall and Otress.
