Several billboards of Nigerian political contenders including President Goodluck Jonathan and opposition leader, Muhammadu Buhari have been splashed at various points in Accra only to attract the attention of Nigeria residents living in Ghana.

Some political pundits and security experts fears and believe the erection of these billboards of political parties in Nigeria could call the attention of the terrorist group in Ghana.

Mr. Pratt speaking on Peace FM, said those fears are misplaced and over-exaggerated due to the cordial relationship between the two countries.

According to him, “It’s not the billboards that will attract the Boko Haram guys...If we say the billboards are too many and we want to complain about that, no problem. But we should not say the billboards shouldn’t be erected at all.

“When you go to Lagos, you see Ghanaian companies doing businesses in Nigeria erecting billboards in their town. So if Ghanaian products can have billboards in their country, why can’t they also have theirs here? Of course this is a political product but still” he added.
