Anambra State Governor, Prof. Chukwuma Soludo, has asked the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi, other candidates and their parties two weeks ultimatum to clear any impending debts on posters and billboards.

The agency said enforcement would begin on December 5, 2022, and the billboards/posters of defaulters will be defaced.

The statement reads: “We urge all Out-Of-Home advertising practitioners to revalidate and register all their billboards. According to a letter addressed to both OAAN and registered Non-OAAN practitioners, the agency has taken major steps towards sanitising outdoor advertising practice through ban on individuals, clients and government agency ownership of billboards. The agency thus expects maximum cooperation from practitioners, in terms of registering their billboards and payments, but is yet to get such.

“Thus, the agency has directed all billboard owners to provide the information required to register each billboard and also pay up for any campaign on them. Through this release, political parties and candidates in the 2023 elections are urged to ensure those handling their campaigns pay to the government to avoid ANSAA defacing their campaign materials. They have two weeks to do this or face legal enforcement”
