The Outdoor Advertising Association of Nigeria (OAAN) has dissociated its members from the signpost which was brought down by a reckless driver leading to a fatal accident on Thursday at Ilasamaja area of Lagos which claimed lives of innocent people. 

In a statement signed by OAAN President, Mr. Tunde Adedoyin, reacted to the news report on the incident which referred to the signpost as a billboard, thus creating a wrong impression that the accident was caused by the fallen billboard. 

According to him, the signpost was a directional signage and the property of the Federal Government and not a billboard as was erroneously referred to in the news reports, adding that OAAN members as professionals, adhere strictly to guidelines issued by government agencies. 

The statement states further: “The attention of the Outdoor Advertising Association of Nigeria (OAAN) has been drawn to news reports on the accident that occurred yesterday at Ilasa, Lagos, involving a truck and a traffic directional signage, and which unfortunately caused the death of at least three commuters.

“OAAN sympathises with the Lagos State Government as well as with the families of the individuals affected by the mishap. The Association, however, wishes to state that contrary to claims in some of the news reports, no billboard was involved. As a matter of fact, the sign structure that was hit by the recalcitrant driver is not a billboard. It is a directional signage, and it is the property of the Federal Government. OAAN wishes to use this platform to correct the misleading impression that had been given in some of the earlier reports. It is important to also add that our members are thoroughbred professionals, constantly guided by the guidelines of the Lagos State Signage and Advertisement Agency, LASAA, and its counterparts across the country.”
