This initiative (outdoor advertising) has no doubt turned around the outdoor life of the State in its short period of existence and also brought about the much needed professionalism in outdoor business (21st Century Compliant Billboards).

We have also supported sign owners and several Outdoor advertising practitioners including their corporate clients in their bid to secure approval for 21st Century compliant billboards

Our activities have also contributed modestly to the internally generated revenue of the State Government and facilitate economic empowerment of its people through job creation.

The aesthetic beauties of most of our highways are well enhanced and advertising structures are becoming more valuable.
