Earlier yesterday, the Rivers State Signage and Advertisement Agency (RISAA) met with printers operating within the state. The meeting was initiated by the Agency to inform the general public on measures to eradicate illegal/indiscriminate posting of bills, flex, flyers etc on street furnitures in the state.
The Acting Managing Director, Chief Hon. Anthony Okeah Esq, urged printers to go about their businesses diligently by ensuring their business are duly registered with the Agency.
He also mentioned how offensive it is to remove signages and cut corners while trying to do business in the state.
This meeting was interactive as printers expressed their concerns tracking unregistered prints, control, and how beneficial this initiative by RISAA to printers.
The M.D encouraged printers on possible partnership, working together in curbing this menace of posters defacing the city.
He expressed his displeasure on the low turn out and thanked the few who attended as the Agency is working towards having a stakeholders meeting that will be beneficial to the general public, and practitioners in the outdoor advertisement business in Rivers State.
