t is safe that the battle against forgery is being won as Port News Nigeria reported yesterday that “The Standards Organisation of Nigeria (SON) is winning the battle against fake and substandard goods and document falsification as it got a conviction against one Mr. Shodipo Olujimi and Gold Channel International who were sentenced to six months imprisonment without an option of fine by an Osogbo Magistrate Court”.
They were both convicted for presenting forged laboratory test results and a forged bank teller for the certification of table water product in Osogbo. While one was convicted to 6 months imprisonment, the other was banned from producing its product for 6 months. Fake and forged laboratory test results supposedly conducted for Genesis Table Water (Sachet) were submitted to SON. The company was also made to pay 25,000 naira for failure to submit genuine laboratory test reports on the pure water product.
