In a statement released on Sunday by Mr. Anthony Ogunleye, the Director of Press at the Office of the Minister, it was emphasized that while Minister Nyesom Wike is grateful for the warm wishes and support from citizens, he firmly requests the discontinuation of lamp post billboards, full-scale billboards, and other advertisements that celebrate his appointment as minister.
