Heads of Advertising Sectoral Groups (HASG), under the aegis of the Association of Advertising Practitioners Council of Nigeria (APCON), have faulted President Goodluck Jonathan for appointing Prince Ngozi Emioma as the chairman of APCON.

They said the appointment contravened the laws establishing the council.

Addressing reporters yesterday at the secretariat of the Association of Advertising Agencies of Nigeria (AAAN), HASG said the President did not consult the industry’s sectoral groups to understand how the council should be constituted.

AAAN President Kelechi Nwosu spoke on behalf of the groups, comprising AAAN, Advertisers Association of Nigeria (ADVAN), Outdoor Advertising Association of Nigeria (OAAN), Broadcasting Organisations of Nigeria (BON) and the Media Independent Practitioners Association of Nigeria (MIPAN).

He said the appointment followed Federal Government’s reconstitution of its boards of corporations and regulatory bodies.

Nwosu said it was in the course of the changes the government announced Emioma’s appointment in contravention of the laws setting up APCON.
