South-East stakeholders in the manufacturing, consumption, service, and allied businesses have urged the Standards Organisation of Nigeria to extend its services to the grassroots.

The stakeholders made this call on Thursday in Enugu during a one-day sensitisation Forum organised by SON themed, ‘Standardisation Panacea for Economic Growth.’

They said once the message of standardisation is achieved at the local community level, it would have a positive socio-economic effect on the country in general.

Speaking during the program, the Permanent Secretary, Enugu State Ministry of Commerce and Industry, Dr Godwin Anigbo, urged SON to extend its services to the grassroots by creating more awareness on standardisation of products and services.
