FCCPC Seals 4U Supermarket in Abuja

The Federal Competition and Consumer Protection Commission (FCCPC) conducted a thorough inspection and subsequent sealing off of the foreign supermarket 4 U, located in Wuse 2, Abuja. This action was taken due to the supermarket’s engagement in objectionable practices, including concealing information and selling substandard bags of rice.

Acting on reports and complaints from consumers, FCCPC officials initiated a campaign to enforce regulations regarding price display and quantity compliance in several supermarkets across the nation’s capital. This campaign was prompted by concerns raised by consumers about the escalating costs of goods, which contradicted the recent strengthening of the naira against major currencies.

During the operation in Abuja, FCCPC officials discovered various infractions at the foreign supermarket 4 U, leading to its immediate closure. Adamu Abdullahi, the Acting Executive Vice Chairman of FCCPC, expressed strong disapproval of the situation, emphasizing the need for strict adherence to consumer protection regulations.

The sealing off of the supermarket serves as a clear message that the FCCPC is committed to ensuring fair and transparent practices in the marketplace. This action aims to safeguard consumers from exploitation and substandard products while promoting a competitive and accountable business environment.
