The Labour Party (LP) has alleged that the Anambra State Government has pulled down the campaign billboards of its presidential and Senatorial candidates for Anambra Central, Mr. Peter Obi and Senator Victor Umeh, respectively mounted at strategic places in the state.
The party accused the state governor, Chukwuma Soludo, of giving the order in that respect.
A chieftain of the party who would not want to be mentioned at this stage of the impasse told Journalists that Obi and Umeh’s large billboard at the Unizik Temporary Site Flyover along the Enugu-Onitsha expressway was pulled down on Saturday by the Anambra Signage and Advertising Agency( ANSAA).
He said, “The billboard at UNIZIK Temporary Site Junction along Enugu-Onitsha expressway was today (Saturday) removed on the orders of Soludo.
“The advert which was placed by an APCON registered Advertising Agency was fully paid for.
“Soludo said that he does not want the Labour Party advert in such a strategic place and ordered the Anambra Signage Agency to refund the money it received for the advert.
“He also ordered the removal of the Labour Party advert at the Afor Nnobi Gantry. This Advert has been there since October 2022 and was paid for five months.
