Omotayo who commended the visiting team, charged other groups and private Organizations to always follow suit in their proposed signage and outdoor structures for better education.

He also used opportunity of the visit to appeal to Kwarans to abide by the rules and regulations of advertising and outdoor structures, adding that the agency will continue to work in accordance with global standards.
