The Federal Road Maintenance Agen­cy (FERMA) has or­dered the immediate removal of all posters, sign posts and billboards from all Federal Government-owned roads in Lagos State.

National Coordinator of the task force of the newly established Subsidy Re­investment and Empower­ment Programme of FERMA (SURE-P FERMA), Alhaji Abdulrazak Rafiu Otto attrib­uted the directive to a recent approval granted the estab­lishment by President Good­luck Jonathan.

President Jonathan directed the agency to take charge of all revenue collections on all advertisements placed on all federal roads in the state on behalf of the federal gov­ernment. The directive also includes all political posters placed on federal roads in the state.

According to him, plans had been concluded to de­ploy officials of the task force to man roads and direct traffic in the state and ensure no per­son places any form of com­mercial or advert materials on federal government owned roads. Any defaulter, who refuses to remove any advert material or places new one, Otto said, would be made to face the law.

“Failure to heed this ad­vice which takes immediate effect will attract serious con­sequences,” he said.

The National Coordinator, while speaking at a rally held in Lagos State to sensitize Lagosians on the activities of the SURE-P/FERMA task force, praised President Jona­than for empowering the es­tablishment, which has gen­erated employment for over 20, 000 young graduates.

Otto had, earlier, joined men of the task force in a road trek throughout Lagos metropolis, accompanied by mobile policemen from the Lagos Police command.
