Digital Billboard Is Cheaper – Ezekwesili Reacts to Removal Of ‘All Eyes on Judiciary’ Advert

Ezekwesili in a post on her social media platform on Wednesday insisted that the Nigerian Judiciary constitutionally owes citizens absolute judicial independence, transparency and integrity.

 
A former Minister of Education, Obiageli Ezekwesili has broken her silence following the removal of ‘All Eyes on the Judiciary’ billboards nationwide.
 
Reacting in a post on her social media platform on Wednesday, Ezekwesili insisted that the Nigerian Judiciary constitutionally owes citizens absolute judicial independence, transparency and integrity.
 
Recall that the federal government ordered the removal of the billboards of “All Eyes on the Judiciary” nationwide, after it claimed that it would pitch the people against the judiciary.
 
The government also dissolved the Adver­tising Standard Panel (ASP) secretariat over its approval of the ‘All Eyes on The Judiciary’ advert.
 
A statement issued on Tuesday by Dr Olalekan Fadolepo, the Director-General of the Adver­tising Regulatory Council of Nigeria, described the advert as insensitive.
 
However, Ezekwesili who took to social media claimed the digital billboard is cheaper than the one demolished, re-stating the advert in many lines.
 
She wrote, “A Digital Billboard is so much cheaper than one that an obviously misguided regulator demolished.
 
“So here’s my message to our Nigerian Judiciary that constitutionally owes citizens absolute judicial independence, transparency and integrity:
 
#AllEyesOnTheJudiciary.”
