The Advertising Practitioners Council of Nigeria (APCON), on Tuesday, reacted to an allegation that its clampdown on some campaign billboards and posters of some political parties were targeted at opposition parties in order to favour the ruling party.

Reacting to a recent report aired on the African Independent Television (AIT) network, Mrs. Ijedi Iyoha, the acting registrar of the Council, vehemently denied the allegation and every insinuation of partisanship in carrying out its regulatory functions and enforcements.

Television station had earlier aired a video which showed some blanked out adverts with the photos of the PDP presidential candidate and his running mate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar and Peter Obi.

Iyoha refuted the claims of selectivity in the exercise, explaining that all the billboards and posters blanked out did not meet the pre-exposure vetting requirements of the Council, and not because they belonged to the opposition parties.
