LCCI expresses worry over SON’s interception of containers on highways

The leadership of the Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI) have expressed concern over reports of interception of containers on the highways by the officials of Standards Organisation of Nigeria (SON).

The President, Mr. Babatunde Runsewe and the Director-General, Mr. Muda Yusuf raised the concern in a communique issued at the end of council meeting on Monday in Lagos.

The LCCI noted that where there were outstanding charges to be paid to SON or issues about SONCAP compliance, such matters should be dealt with before the container leaves the port.

“It is unprofessional for the operatives of SON to be intercepting containers on the highways on account of some fees or charges that have not been settled by importers,” LCCI said.
