Olajide, who spoke in Abuja  at the opening of the new office of the company, said a lot of products in the market are either fake or re-cycled.
He said the dearth of quality engineering solutions and drive outlets informed the decision of the firm to extend its presence to Abuja.
He stressed the urgent need by the federal government to effect ways of encouraging Nigerians to work rather than for revenue generation to be seen as control mechanism.
He also stated that a lot of lip service is paid to inspection and industry regulations certification.
Olajide also decried the proliferation of low quality engineering solutions in the country.
Decrying the negative effects adulteration and fake engineering products have had on the growth of the profession, Olajide  said stakeholders have concluded arrangements to embark on continuous enlightenment to stop the practice. Executive Director, of the company, James Wood, who also spoke at the occasion, blamed ignorance on the part of some stakeholders who either use or fabricate fake spare parts, saying both adulterated and original cost the same figure in the final analysis.
