The Standards Organisation of Nigeria (SON) has certified Sea Horse lubricant genuine and of top quality. SON officials gave the verdict on Monday after touring the magnificent factory of Sea Horse Lubricant Industries Limited located along the Onitsha/Owerri Expressway. They had inspected the production processes and the high tech machines ranging from rubber crushing machines for recycling purposes, rubber molding machine, a well-equipped laboratory for tests during oil production among others.

The inspection was carried out by SON officials from Lagos, accompanied by their Anambra counterpart. The team was led by SON Deputy Director, Standard development, Mr. Afolayan Agbola Samuel.

In the process of the inspection, the officials took time to visit the plant, lab and production sections of the industry.

Addressing journalists after the inspection tour which included oil test in the lab to certify that Sea Horse oil met the specified minimum percent range as mapped out by SON, Afolayan said the essence of the inspection is to ensure the product is produced in Nigeria and also meets SON standard and specification.

He explained that mistakes cited in the process of inspection would be pointed out to the manufacturer for correction adding that the visit was also to confirm that the certification given to the company was not done in error.

At the end of the Sea Horse oil test which was collected from one of the cans of oil, the result gave a 121 grade above the SON’s 120 grade.

To this end, the Sea Horse oil was certified genuine and authentic by the SON official.

While commending the CEO of the company for establishing such huge business at a very young age, he urged Nigerians to patronise homemade goods saying: “That is the only way we can encourage the manufacturers and others who also may have something to offer.

“All we are fighting against is importation into Nigeria and that’s because we want to promote our locally made goods so as to improve on our economy and stop promoting other people’s economy while our own die.

“It is the duty of SON to ensure that any product manufactured in the country also adhere to specification as laid out by SON, which is why we go on quarterly visits to such companies. That way we keep them on their toes and ensure they don’t shift away from the standard.

“From the result of the test conducted today, it shows that Sea Horse is genuine and authentic. I encourage people to go for it. It also has ANCAP certification.”

Speaking on why he decided to cite the industry at home, Anambra-born Ebuka Onunkwo, who made his money in Cotonou, Benin Republic, said: “It is my philosophy that whatever business I do must be brought to my homeland. That way it is insured.”
