ONE year after, the Director General of the Oyo State Signage and Advertisement Agency (OYSAA), Yinka Adepoju, has scored its agency performance as near excellent.

In a statement to commemorate the first anniversary of the agency, Adepoju, who praised the Governor Isiaka Abiola Ajimobi for establishing the agency and giving it the necessary support, stated that the agency is not only fulfilling the purpose for which it was set up, but also taking on vision.

"On a personal note, let me commend our God chosen leader, the people's governor for the tremendous success recorded so far in his administration's Transformation, Restoration and Repositioning agenda. You are a light to many of us, please keep the light always shining.

"For us at Oyo State Signage and Advertisement Agency (OYSAA), I make bold to say that Oyo State is well on its way to achieving environmental standards and best practices, a novel trend which other states are already emulating."

He said that in the one year existence of the regulatory outfit, it has successfully cleaned up the major routes in Ibadan ditto Oyo and Ogbomoso by removing sub standard, dilapidated, dangerously and badly positioned billboards.

"These cities are now clean, very calm and wearing new looks. We hope to replicate this in other major towns of the state especially now that the State Government has graciously approved for our Agency new set of operation equipment. This development has positively enhanced our performance level."

He listed the achievement of the agency to include registration of outdoor practitioners in line with agreed categories; regularization of 1st Party and 3rd Party structures and removal of illegal boards and structures; creation of an outdoor advertisement environment of a world class standard as billboards are now environment friendly in the state; effective sensitization of the industry players and the general public; creation of a well defined Data Base with records of every signage and other advertisement structures in the state; smooth and seamless deployment of modernized structures and landscaping the surrounding areas of such; creation of more environmentally complementing outdoor advertising formats which have assisted greatly in the area of revenue generation.

According to him, in moving forward, the agency hopes to adopt the Public Private Partnership (PPP) initiative judging from the meagre resources available to the state government and its thirst in providing excellent social service delivery to the people in order to enhance the socio-economic activities of the state.

He mentioned provision of solar powered street light poles; construction of Ultra Modern Bus Shelters (Bus Stops); installation of advert based street directional signs and house numbering exercise; branding of newly acquired government buses; branding of public places like parks and gardens, markets, garages and roundabouts; deployment of LED electronic video display boards in strategic locations of the state capital to which concessional approvals have already been granted to about ten practitioners, as upcoming projects and programmes.

"A practical demonstration of this is what you see on Parliament Road leading to the state secretariat. This is the first of its kind, more of such are under construction and very soon will emerge and add value to the global beautification exercise currently going on around the state.

"This initiative no doubt has the capacity to greatly enhance the environment and increase the State's revenue generation drive whilst reaping the benefits of business efficiency."
