Hon. Temilola Adibi stated that prior to this time, the Agency has warned the Advertising Practitioners and other stakeholders to regularise their billboards and pay their debts or forfeit them to the Agency.
He maintained that owners and users of signage all over the world are expected to pay fees for their campaigns to the coffer of the Government. Hence, there is need for the Advertising Practitioners to fulfill their obligations to the Government.
The DG condemned the lackadaisical attitude of some Advertising Practitioners for not willing to pay their dues and stated further that it would not going to be business as usual but business with decorum.
