The Federal Government has ordered the removal of “All Eyes on the Judiciary” billboards nationwide.

The government also dissolved the Adver­tising Standard Panel (ASP) secretariat over its approval of the advert.

Dr Olalekan Fadolepo, the Director-General of the Adver­tising Regulatory Council of Nigeria, an­nounced this in a statement on Tuesday.

According to him, the advert is insensitive and pending before the Judiciary.

“The Advertis­ing Standards Panel did not approve the exposed concepts; hence, the council has directed that all the exposed materials be brought down immediately and the violators sanctioned”, he said.

The “ALL Eyes on the Judiciary” advert comes amid anxiety as Nigerians await the judgement of the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal.

It was also recalled that the candidates of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, and Labour Party’s Peter Obi, challenged the victory of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s victory in the 2023 presidential election.
