The Adamawa State government has instructed the presidential campaign office of Gombe state governor, Ibrahim Dankwambo, to remove his giant billboard in Yola because it was erected on a space allocated as a parking space for commercial tricycles known as “Keke Napep”.
The notice was given to Mr Dankwambo via a letter from Adamawa State Urban Planning and Development Authority Yola dated July 12.
In the notice signed by the Director, Town Planning on behalf of the General Manager, the agency, said its decision is “ in accordance with section 34 and 37 Adamawa State Urban and Regional Planning Law ADS Law No. 3 of 2010”.
The letter acknowledged that the Dankwambo campaign organisation had submitted an application to the authority on July 9 requesting for approval to place the billboard.
The billboard is currently placed at a roundabout closed to Yola International Airport.
Giving further reasons for disapproving the request, the Urban Planning authority said: “ the site was already allocated to Keke NAPEP as parking space”.
It also ask the Gombe governor “to remove the billboard within 24 hours or have it removed by the authority”.
It also advised him to “look for another site for approval by the authority before posting” the billboard.
