Oyo warns against posters
The Oyo State Signage and Advertising Agency (OYSAA) has warned parties, aspirants, campaign teams and supporters against indiscriminate pasting of posters. OYOSAA said it would continue to pursue its zero tolerance policy on indiscriminate use of posters in the state. Its Director-General, Yinka Adepoju, gave the warning yesterday while addressing reporters in Ibadan. Adepoju denied the allegation that the agency’s regulatory activities were targeted at some groups.
“Governor Abiola Ajimobi established this board three years ago to bring professionalism into the state’s outdoor life. It will be a disservice to the government and the people of Oyo State if we now allow indiscriminate pasting of posters, flying of banners and erection of unapproved billboards.
“It has taken this administration, time, great effort, human and financial resources to arrive where we are presently and we don’t think it is sensible to allow degradation.”
