Delta Governor Ifeanyi Okowa.
The Delta State Sector Commander of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), Asaba, Mr. Rindom T. Kumven, has expressed delight on the calibre of members of the state committee on consumer protection, stating that he was confident in the committee's capability in discharging its responsibilities.
Mr. Kumven, who spoke on Tuesday when the Chairman of the Delta State Committee on Consumer Protection and Commissioner for Commerce and Industry, Chief (Barr) Mrs. Mary Iyasere, represented by the Secretary of the committee, Mr. Felix Oseji, visited him in his office, urged the committee to partner with the FRSC in the discharge of its duties to members of the public.
He encouraged the committee not to relent in its determination to achieve the objectives for which it was set up even in the face of resistance and challenges, and assured of the Command's willingness to dispatch officers and men to aid the committee in discharging its functions.
Also speaking when members of the committee visited Delta Broadcasting Services (DBS), Asaba, the General Manager, Mrs. Evelyn Binite, commended the state government for its initiative in inaugurating the committee, and assured it of her full-fledged support.
A member of the management team of DBS urged the committee to be vigilant in co-opting members as a guard against corrupt members and ill-practices.
In the same vein, the Chairman of the Ogbeogonogo Traders’ Association, Augustine Nwaobodo, assured the committee of his support and cooperation, stating that the committee was indeed a welcome development as members of the public had long sought for such consumer protection body to help checkmate the nefarious acts of producers and quacks, promising to help organise sensitisation programmes for the market women and traders.
The Chairman of the Committee, (Barr.) Mrs Mary Iyasere, represented by the Secretary of the committee, Mr. Felix Oseji, called on the critical stakeholders visited to partner with the committee to ensure a more healthy and satisfactory product delivery.
She urged them to help spread the news of the committee's presence as a ready body to address consumer disputes, redress wrongs, sanction as well as prosecute offenders if the need arises, among other functions.
