Advertising Regulatory Agencies in Nigeria

Advertising Regulatory Agencies are the statutory bodies in charge of monitoring and control of any type of communication and public promotion of different products or services to consumers and users. 

Adverts approved by the regulatory agencies can either be in the visual form or audio. 

In Nigeria, there are different forms of advertising ranging from outdoor to digital advertising placements. 

However, there are different regulations that oversee the contents of all adverts and the influence it has on the general public.
