By Admin

As part of efforts to ensure adequate protection of residents of Cross River state from intake of fake, sub standard and unhygienic products, the Director General of Cross River state Consumer Protection Agency, Prince Charles Ushie has solicited the support of the Hausa Fulani Community in fostering safety measures for a hygienic society.

Ushie spoke while on a courtesy visit to the Head of the Hausa Fulani Community in Cross River State, Sarki Salisu Abba Lawal II, stressed on the need for collaborative sensitization as primary source of fighting for consumer protection.

In his words “the agency is against any product that causes harm to public health. We have a Governor who is passionate about protection of people under his watch and that necessitated the making of Consumer protection Agency which initially operated only as a department under ministry of trade and investment.

“We also know that product such as palm oil, meat and other consumables are processed by the Hausa people thereby making them, vital stake holders of the agency”

Reacting, Sarki Salisu Abba Lawal II, applauded the DG of Consumer protection Agency and his Entourage for cueing into Governor Ayade’s lofty leadership pattern, known for quality, speed and up to date with standard best practices.

The Sarki said “According to our own estimation, we see every effort by Sen Prof Ben Ayade as people oriented. Every Hausa Fulani man will attest to the fact that never in the history of governance have we secured so much appointment as it is done by the present administration.

Seen Prof Ben Ayade is our Governor and we must support his administration”. He avarred.

On the need to form sensitization teams at Community level, Sarki Salisu Abba Lawal II promised to start the sensitization in calabar before stepping up same to other Hausa Fulani settlements across the state. “it is obvious, our people are not Aware of their expectations and roles in the consumer protection process”.He added

Highlights of the visit include group photograph and presentation of pamphlets to Cross River State leader of the Hausa Fulani Community.
