OGHA to review signage agency’s operational law, block leakages


The Ogun House of Assembly on Tuesday assured the State Signage and Advertisement Agency (OGSAA) that it would review the law guiding its operations.

It said it would do so to reflect the existing realities and block all leakages in its revenue-generating process.

Mr Yusuf Adejojo, the Chairman, House Committee on Information, gave the assurance during a visit to OGSAA’s Head Office in Abeokuta.

The visit also took him and his team to other zonal offices located in Ojodu, Ado-Odo/Ota and Ijebu-Ode areas of the state.

“The House of Assembly wishes to assure the management of the signage agency that the assembly will immediately commence further review of the OGSAA law whenever it is brought before the House,” Adejojo said.

The legislator, in company with other committee members, warned unapproved revenue agencies against any form of transaction on behalf of OGSAA.

Earlier, the General Manager of OGSAA, Mr. Fola Onifade, had called for a review of the signage law.

Onifade cited the need to include relevant and commensurate punishment for fake collectors in the law, to serve as deterrent to perpetrators.

“The agency is already embarking on vigorous sensitisation against illegal collection of fees by fake collectors or agents,” the general manager said.

In his submission, the Zonal Manager, OGSAA,  Ado-Odo Ota Zone, Mr Olalekan Gbeleyi, called for the employment of more personnel at the district level, to cover more areas in the state. (NAN)(www.nannews.ng)
