Move over, billboards advertising fast moving consumer goods or services and popular artistes used as the poster faces of the products.
Now, Nigerian Pastors and their beaus are the new deal, the favourite faces adorning all sizes of billboards across the country.
In what seemed the next phase of the obliteration of Nigeria’s productive sector which began with acquisition of warehouses for religious worship, Nigerian clergymen are fast taking over billboard sites from advertisers of goods and services.
The outdoor billboard has become the favourite medium for showcasing the Pastors with their well cut designer suits, billowing Agbada or Kaftan.
Always beside the Pastors are their beautiful wives who seemed to be out to display the wealth of their husbands as they are decked in designer dresses and Jewelries.
