The Kwara State Signage and Advertisement Agency, KWASA, on Monday said it had removed over 50 campaign billboards across the state for non compliance with laid down rules.

KWASA General Manager, Ahmed Olufadi, disclosed this in llorin during an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria.

According to Mr Olufadi most billboards and signposts were erected indiscriminately without due process especially in the state capital.

“Some of the billboards constitute nuisance to motorists and pedestrians especially those on the dual carriageway in some parts of the metropolis,” he said.

He said some of the billboards were also erected under power line which constitute danger especially during rainy season.

“The removal of billboards and signposts illegally erected will be a continuous exercise by the agency.

“This is aimed at ensuring sanity and due process,” Mr Olufadi said.

He advised politicians no matter how highly placed in the society to abide by laid down rules.

“Politicians should ensure payment of approved fees before erecting campaign billboards and signposts,” he said.

Mr Olufadi also warned those whose billboards and signposts were removed not to replace them without consulting the agency.
