Globacom has said that it’s sponsored TV drama series, Professor Johnbull, will focus on the effects of counterfeiting in its next edition.
In a new episode titled Substandard Products, the sitcom draws the nation’s attention to the health hazards and other negative implications of such products on consumers.
According to the company, the new episode would be broadcast to millions of viewers on NTA Network, NTA International, DSTV and on Startimes next week.
Globacom said, “Substandard Products is a must watch for all lovers of public health and well being as this latest episode of the Drama Series focuses on the potent dangers fake, adulterated, substandard products and consumables pose to public health. The episode is as entertaining as it is educating.”
In the new episode, the concept of “deaths in the shop” as epitomised by the existence of adulterated fuel, expired and fake pharmaceutical products, collapse of buildings due to substandard materials, availability of locally produced goods with contrived foreign labels, fire outbreaks in homes and offices due to fake electrical appliances, all resulting from greed and uncontrolled quest for wealth, will come to the fore.
