Anambra State government has banned the use of campaign posters on bridges, roundabouts, and others in the state.

The state government also stated that for any presidential candidate to paste a campaign poster in the state they must pay N10 million while senatorial candidates will pay N7million.
The government also taxed the Federal House of Representatives candidates the sum of N5 million; State House of Assembly, N1million to be eligible to paste their campaign posters in the state.

This was made known in a statement signed by the MD/CEO of Anambra Signage and Advertising Agency, ANSAA, Tony Odili Ujubuonu.

He stated that the statutory costs for out-of-home media and mobile advertising were pegged at N100,000 for 48 sheets billboards; N500,000 for Spectacular billboards; N500,000 Gantry displays; N100,000 for irregularly shaped billboard; N50,000 for branded vehicle; and N5,000 for Keke rear branding, respectively.

The state government also banned the pasting of campaign posters on street light poles; round-about and other public buildings in the state.

According to the statement, materials in advert forms such as posters, public address systems, banners, fliers, bunting, T-shirts, caps and sundries must be fully paid for and approved by the government authority before it is displayed for public consumption in the state.

It also directed that the payment of posters be made to the government revenue account before pasting anywhere, noting that politicians who default on the payments would face legal prosecution before the election.

The statement read in part:
Quote
“As the campaign for the 2023 general election officially commences next month, September; Anambra State Signage and Advertisement Agency (ANSAA), in charge of all forms of advertising in the state, wishes to bring some important information to your notice.

“That pasting of posters on bridges, road demarcations; street light poles, roundabouts and public buildings remain prohibited.
“That every campaign material and advert forms such as posters, public address systems, banners, fliers, buntings, T-shirts, caps and sundries must be duly approved for after full payment of the requisite fee.

    “That every billboard must be displayed through a registered advertising practitioner after the advertising content has been vetted by the APCON.”
