The lawmaker representing Esan North-East/South-East federal constituency of Edo State in the House of Representatives, Hon. Sergius Ogun has stated that the companies producing major toilet wash products are misleading Nigerians.
He asserted that the advertisements of major toilet wash products in the market and reality are contradictory to their potency.
In the motion moved by the lawmaker on Tuesday, Ogun argued that toilet cleaning disinfectants such as Harpic and Hypo used in most households in Nigeria are ineffective, of poor quality and leave much to be desired, according to Daily Post.
He said, “Despite the poor quality of these toilet cleaning disinfectants, there are several television sponsored advertisements that are misleading unsuspecting members of the public who rely on such adverts product information to make purchases;
“Section 17(e) of the Federal Competition and Consumer Protection Commission Act, 2018 empowers the Commission to carry out investigations considered necessary or desirable in connection with matters within the purview of the Act.”
However, the House of Representatives resolved to investigate the effectiveness of major toilet wash products in the market.
