According to Osun State Coordinator of SON, Mr Sunday Badewole, consumers must ensure they get receipt for every good they buy. This he said would help them to trace the address of the seller in the event there was a problem.

“Consumers should be mindful of where they buy their goods. Anywhere a receipt will not be given after purchase, is not a place to go,” Badewole said.

Emphasising the importance of getting an express warranty in writing, “Any good without a warranty, we classify them as substandard.

“A warranty means that a manufacturer or seller is giving his commitment to a particular product, that after sales he is still responsible for it for a certain period of time.
“But if the warranty is not there, who will be responsible for the product if it developed any fault?”
