3 months ago | 86


THE Kwara state Signage and Advertisement Agency (KWASAA) has begun aggressive monitoring and enforcement of the agency’s policy across the state’s 16 Local Government Areas (LGAs).

The KWASAA Director-General, Mr Olorunshola Omotayo, announced at a news conference in Ilorin on Wednesday, that the agency was ready to regularise unapproved billboards and signposts erected across the 16 council areas.

Omotayo said that the exercise, part of the agency’s activities for 2021, was to ensure compliance with the rules and regulations of the agency.

He described as lawless the breaking of the laid down rules and regulations by some advertising practitioners and other stakeholders in an attempt to promote themselves and their businesses.

“The ongoing exercise will lead to the removal of unauthorized and debtors’ billboards, as well as signposts, across the LGAs,’’ the KWASAA boss said.

The director-general cautioned politicians, individuals, schools, religious bodies, filling stations, corporate organizations and advertising practitioners to desist from pasting illegal posters and erecting unauthorized billboards.

He also encouraged advertising practitioners and other stakeholders to fulfill their obligations to the state government by paying all their outstanding debts by remitting same to KWASAA.

Omotayo warned the staff of the agency against indolence and laziness, saying that the agency would not condone any acts of indiscipline by the staff.

He urged the staff to eschew corruption and other related offenses that were capable of tarnishing their image and that of the agency.

The KWASAA boss advised the staff to be more committed and dedicated to their duties, promising that the agency would identify hard work and reward it. (NAN)
