Speaking at the event, Fatima Aliko Dangote, said, “In these days of artificial intelligence, where consumers are buffeted with information on many products and services which may turn out to be false or less than what is promised”, they have the rights to know all the key information on the product and services.

She said: “We need businesses to adopt ethical business practices that prioritize the well-being of consumers and the planet. We need educational initiatives that empower consumers with the knowledge and skills to navigate the complexities of the modern marketplace,”
