AMMC Warns Against Defacing Abuja With Posters
The Abuja Metropolitan Management Council (AMMC) has told political parties and politicians in Nigeria not to deface the city with their campaign posters ahead of 2019 general elections.
The AMMC Coordinator, Mr Umar Shuiabu stated this when he led a strong FCTA team to the national Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), John Odigie-Oyegun, in Abuja.
Mr Shuiabu explained that the aimed of the visit was to sensitize them on the need to desist from pasting posters on public facilities, such as buildings, walls, signage and others.
“The FCTA built this city and we are managing it amidst scare resources; but the residents are not helping us as they should. So as we are approaching campaign period, the posting of posters will likely increase. That is why we have embarked on this campaign to try and stop it, or at least reduce it to the barest minimum.
“We (APC) have to show example for others to follow. As the party in power, we need it to lead the campaign against indiscriminate pasting of posters in Abuja”, he added.
