The federal government has ordered the removal of “All Eyes on the Judiciary” billboards nationwide.

The government also announced the dissolution of the Adver­tising Standard Panel (ASP) secretariat following its approval of the controversial advert.

The director-general of the Adver­tising Regulatory Council of Nigeria, Dr Olalekan Fadolepo, an­nounced the development in a statement on Tuesday.

Fadolepo said 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 was approved and deployed amid anxiety as Nigerians await the judgement of the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal.

Recall that the candidates of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, and Peter Obi of the Labour Party (LP) are in court challenging the victory of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s victory in the 2023 presidential election.
