In an exercise aimed at exposing sponsors of posters in the State, Lagos State Signage and Advertisement Agency (LASAA) says the decision to “name and shame” persistent offenders are inevitable because offenders are un-repentant.
The Agency disclosed that 60% of posters in the State are pasted by those on its list made up mainly of educational and religious institutions.
“We are ready to name and shame erring offenders because they have shown no remorse” LASAA Chief Executive Officer, George Kayode Noah said.
Noah added that we have compiled the list of companies to be named in the publication .This publication is coming after series of warnings from LASAA in the media against the indiscriminate pasting of posters. Last month the Agency deployed public notices around the city which read “Don’t mess with Lagos, Pasting of posters is illegal”.
According to Noah ‘’ the campaign has generated a lot of attention and success but it is important we take it to another level. We believe the fight against poster in Lagos is total and we will deploy all our resources to ensure our city is clean’’, he concluded.
It is expected that the publication will act as deterrents to all sponsors and commissioned Agents who deface Lagos with posters
