CPC Issues Ultimatum To Samsung On Galaxy Note 7 Recall In Nigeria by omokenny94a(m): 12:31am On Sep 19, 2016
Consumer Protection Council (CPC) has issued a seven-day ultimatum to Samsung Electronics West Africa Limited to recall its Galaxy Note 7, following inundated explosion of Galaxy Note 7 while charging while it warned Nigerians to stop using the particular Note meanwhile.

The Council in Abuja yesterday demanded Samsung to provide it with information on the full status of its compliance with the global directive on the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 within the next one week.

CPC’s also directed that Samsung Electronics West Africa Limited should furnish it with other measures the company had taken to safeguard the safety and interest of Nigerian consumers.

The Director-General of CPC, Mrs. Dupe Atoki, said in line with international best practices, the company should immediately issue a recall notice giving Nigerian consumers adequate information on the procedure for recall and the appropriate compensation being offered.

According to her, “While awaiting the response of Samsung Electronics West Africa Limited in order to determine the number of affected consumers in Nigeria, there is an urgent need to avert whatever dangers that may be associated with the use of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 in Nigeria.”

The Director General explained that Samsung had announced in the United States that consumers with Samsung Galaxy Note 7 could check whether or not their phones are affected and eligible for recall by entering the IMEI or serial number of their phone in a space provided on Samsung website, www.samsung.com/us/note/recall/, saying that Nigerian consumers can avail themselves of that facility.

The CPC DG however advised Nigerian consumers who might have purchased the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 should to stop using the phone forthwith as an interim measure to guide against the effect of the explosion.

Atoki urged the company to ensure that affected consumers either get a free replacement from Samsung, or a refund of their money, where necessary. The Council, in a letter to the company dated September 14, 2016, signed by its Director General, Mrs. Dupe Atoki, said “The attention of the Council has been drawn to media reports indicating that the lithium-ion batteries for Samsung Galaxy Note 7 are prone to catching fire.”

The letter further stated, “The said faulty batteries have reportedly caused the phone to explode in 35 separate incidents, sometimes bursting into flames, damaging property and leaking dangerous chemicals,” expressing concern that “some Nigerian consumers may already have purchased the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 for personal or other uses.”

“You are, therefore, directed to, within seven days of the receipt of this letter, furnish the Council with information on the full status of your compliance with the global directive of Samsung to recall the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 forthwith, including other measures you may have taken to safeguard the safety and interest of Nigerian consumers in this respect.” it added.

CPC is the apex consumer protection agency of the Federal Government of Nigeria established by the CPC Act Cap 25, LFN 2004 to, among others, educate Nigerian consumers, remove hazardous products from the market, provide redress to consumer complaints and ban the sale of products which do not comply with safety or health regulations.

Bad Market for Samsung.
I'm sure iPhone will take a subtle jab at them soon.


I hope CPC follows this through though. Nigerian mobile marketers will give you a story line that will make your balls shiver if you decide to return the "money miss road" phone.

Samsung time don expired.

*WHO KNOWS TOMORROW??*

In 1985, Dasuki arrested Buhari.

In 2016, Buhari arrested Dasuki.

In 1995, Al Mustapha arrested Obasanjo on the order of General Abacha.

In 1999, Obasanjo arrested Al Mustapha and he was jailed for 8 years.

In the 90's under Rawlings regime Dr. Spio Gabriel was the minister of communications and Mahama was his deputy.

Today John Mahama is the President and has employed his former boss as minister.

Life is like a COIN thrown up in the air. You can't really predict which side will turn up.

NO ONE STAYS ON TOP FOREVER. IT'S JUST A MATTER OF TIME AND SEASON.

That Person you Despised/Ridiculed/Treated like shits and act like GOD over today, may have control over your Life/Career or Save your head tomorrow. NO ONE KNOWS TOMORROW!.

Treat everyone with respect and show some kindness because there will always be a tomorrow. Be good to all!

A Boss today might become a Subordinate tomorrow because there's no permanent state in life.

ALWAYS USE YOUR POWERS AND POSITIONS CAUTIOUSLY AND FOR THE BENEFIT OF ALL.

Always stand for what is right, fair and just.
Like Mugabe said: "...treat the towel with care because the same place you used in cleaning your bottom today might be the same place you will use in cleaning your face tomorrow."

REMEMBER THIS, NO ACT OF KINDNESS IS A WASTE! OUR PRIME PURPOSE IN LIFE IS TO HELP OTHERS AND IF YOU CAN NOT HELP THEM, AT LEAST DO NOT HURT THEM!

Not a mistake. Read and Reflect.

Nice if only they will follow it through and through.
Nigerians are notorious for shouting at the top of their voices and then collecting backhand, then quietly slinks back to allow the issue die a natural death.

But sha what will all those babes that have been disturbing the whole neighborhood with their note 7s do now?

According to fayose, "how does this news affect d price of rice in d market"?............. especially in dis time of recession? For me, dis is no news. Any story dt does not bother on the economy or polity as it is today, does not deserve to make d rounds.................my opinion though.
