Sen. Dino Melaye suffered a major defeat today as federal High Court sitting in Lokoja declined to grant the prayers of a suit filed by the former senator representing Kogi West and governorship candidate of the People’s Democratic Party, seeking to, among other things, halt the activities of the Kogi State Signage and Advertisement Agency.

Dino Melaye had filed an exparte injunction dated, 12th day of September praying the court to declare the creation of the Agency null and void, stating that its creation was against constitutional provisions, and to halt the activities of the agency.

In her ruling, the presiding judge, Justice Ruth Alfa, held that the ex-parte injunction was defective and therefore did not even delve into the merit of the injunction.

The head of the Agency, Mr Richard Osaseyi had announced that the State would no longer allow defacing of outdoor structures through pasting and erection of advertisement billboards and posters.

Using the law that established Agency, Osaseyi said his organization would forthwith commence the removal of all unauthorized forms of outdoor Advertisement.

He urged the general public to head to the Agency to make all necessary payments for all outdoor Advertisement.

According to Osaseyi, the Agency is committed to delivering on the mandate that established it so as to bring sanity to the Advertisement stratosphere.
