2019: FCTA warns politicians against indiscriminate pasting of posters


As the 2019 elections draw near, the Abuja Metropolitan Management Council, AMMC, has urged various political parties and politicians against defacing the city with their campaign posters, disclosing that the penalty for violating the guideline was one million for an organisation and N100, 000 for an individual; including payment for the removal of those posters.

AMMC Coordinator, Umar Shuiabu, gave this warning when he led FCTA team to the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, John Odigie-Oyegun, in Abuja, to sensitise members of the party 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 scarce 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,” the coordinator said.

The APC chairman, who was represented by director of administration in the party secretariat, Abdullahi Y. Gashua, assured the AMMC that he would convey the message to its forthcoming National Working Committee meeting for onward sensitisation.

Gashua, however, pledged the cooperation of the APC to the cause of making the nation’s capital a clean city.
