We will no longer tolerate abuse of consumers’ rights, says LASCOPA
Lagos State Consumer Protection Agency (LASCOPA) has vowed to check all forms of abuse of consumers’ rights in the state, saying, “It will no longer be business as usual.”
Addressing newsmen after a walk to mark the Consumer Protection Day, Chairman of LASCOPA, Funmilola Falana assured that the agency was doing everything possible to protect consumers in the state, adding that services rendered by the agency were free of charge. Also speaking, the General Manager of LASCOPA, Oluwakemi Olugbode said the era of cheating and short-changing consumers in Lagos was over. She urged Lagosians to visit the agency’s office, call or send emails to report any individual or company who had deprived them of their rights in respect to goods and services and assured them that they would get justice.
She said plans were underway to take the sensitisation walk to Epe, Badagry, Ikorodu and other areas of the state. She said it was time to give consumers value for their money. Governor Ambode, inaugurated the agency in January this year, and charged the board to stop the abuse of rights of consumers.
