An Abuja High Court, presided over by Justice Muawiyah Baba Idris, has declared the creation of the Department of Outdoor Advertisement and Signage (DOAS) by the Federal Captial Territory administration as illegal and unknown to law.

He said the establishment of DOAS did not have basis in the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, having been created contrary to the dictates of Section 1 (3) and Paragraph 1 (K) of the fourth Schedule of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999 (as amended).

Justice Idris made the pronouncement while delivering judgement in a suit filed by Metro Auto Workshop Nigeria Limited, Alhaji Muhammed Sani Yussuf (for and on behalf of all residents and business owners within the Abuja Municipal Area Council of the FCT) against the Abuja Municipal Area Council, Abuja Environmental Protection Board and others.

According to Justice Idris, by the provisions of Section 7 and the fourth Schedule 11c (i) of the 1999 Constitution as amended, it is the function of the local council to control and regulate outdoor advertising and boarding.
