Kaduna Capital Territory warns against indiscriminate pasting of bills

  • Vows to penalise violators

In light of the incessant and indiscriminate posting of bills (posters) on public infrastructure, the Kaduna Capital Territory Authority (KCTA) is releasing this statement as a call to the general public to desist from defacing public infrastructures such as flyovers, bridges, roundabouts, walls, streetlights, and traffic signs, which constitute acts of vandalism.

We are mindful of the activities that depict the campaign season and the need for support groups to showcase their desired candidates. However, this act of solidarity should not be to the detriment of the newly rehabilitated city infrastructures.

Therefore, the use of adhesive to place posters and the writing on public infrastructure is vehemently discouraged. As an alternative, polymer, vinyl, polyethylene banners, billboards, flyers, handbills/pamphlets, brochures, calendars, notebooks, and branded souvenirs should replace posters.

To restore the aesthetics of the defaced structures, KCTA’s Monitoring and Enforcement team has embarked on a removal exercise as the first line of action to ensure the continued maintenance of these infrastructures. Subsequently, violators, including organizations, aspirants, and individuals, will be penalized according to provisions of extant State Laws and Regulations.

Finally, residents of Kaduna city must work together to preserve the exemplary work of the Governor, Mallam Nasir el-Rufai, and ensure that Kadcity remains the choice place to live, work, and play.
