- The Lagos State Signage and Advertisement Agency (LASAA) has defended the removal of the billboards of the PDP governorship candidate, Jimi Agbaje
- Mobolaji Sanusi explained that the PDP candidate did not seek the permission of the agency before mounting the billboards
- Sanusi also noted that there are rules and regulations guiding the pasting of bills and posters in Lagos state which must be strictly adhered to
Mobolaji Sanusi, the managing director of LASAA, has said that the removal of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship candidate Jimi Agbaje's posters on third mainland bridge is not politically motivated, Channels TV reports.
The LASAA boss disclosed this on Wednesday, December 5, during a security and stakeholders meeting with the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and political parties summoned by the Lagos commissioner of police, Imohimi Edgal.
According to Sanusi, some of the installations of the A-frame posters by the Lagos PDP governorship candidate contravene the LASAA guidelines.
He explained further that the agency has guidelines but many political candidates are flouting the rules.
Sanusi recommended that politicians should play by the rules and make an official request to the agency before deploying their A-frame posters and billboards, adding that the agency usually cleans up the state on weekly basis to remove any poster or billboards mounted illegally across the state.
In a previous report by Legit.ng, Jimi Agbaje on Saturday, December 1, alleged that his campaign billboards were damaged in the night of Friday, November 30.
In reaction to the incident, the PDP's governorship candidate in the state said on his Twitter page: “Early this morning, our boards were vandalized and removed just as campaign commenced. Some of our deployment staff were also threatened with violence and warned to desist.”
