The giant broom, a logo of the rulling party, All Progressives Congress (APC), erected at the City Gate, Abuja, has finally been removed.
The giant broom, which drew several criticisms from residents, some of who described it as an eye sore at the federal capital territory, was removed Friday afternoon.
Sahara Reporters reports that construction workers were spotted at the City Gate pulling down the broom which was made of iron rods.
Recall that Legit.ng earlier reported that the FCT Department of Outdoors Advertisement Services (DOAS) on February 11, 2019, clarified its reason for approving the construction of a giant broom near the city gate of Nigeria's capital, Abuja.
DOAS said the construction of the broom, which is the symbol of the All Progressives Congress (APC), followed due process, Daily Trust reports.
DOAS is the department in the FCTA empowered to register, authorise, bill, control, as well as collect revenues for advertising and signage within Abuja.
According to the coordinator of Abuja Metropolitan Management Council (AMMC), Umar Shuaibu, the APC got approval for the broom to be mounted.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that the federal government, through Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha, on Thursday, March 14, inaugurated an inter-ministerial presidential inauguration committee for the swearing-in ceremony of President Muhammadu Buhari which is to take place on Wednesday, May 29.
