Chinese Telecoms services giant Huawei has cancelled its
street lamp pole outdoor contract, with Lagos based outdoor advertising agency
Touchpoint Limited over illegal deployment of 
Goodluck Jonathan campaign materials on poles paid for by the company.
Huawei had secured the old tollgate location by Motorways,
Ojota, Lagos, for a period of one year and had paid the mandatory Lagos State
Signage & Advertisement Agency (LASAA) fee for their campaign.  Sources at Huawei said the deployment of
Goodluck Jonathan campaign materials alongside theirs was unacceptable and
therefore had no alternative but to cancel the contract.

Touch Point in a statement said ‘Our client, Huawei  cancelled 
the contract saying it was due to the breach by the PDP to run a parallel
campaign on poles solely reserved for Huawei’’.
The statement went on further: ‘Elections should not be used
as an avenue to disrupt the honest business of hardworking Nigerians. There are
procedures for deployment of items on street lamp poles and, going through this
crude means is not only damaging, it is unfair, inconsiderate and above all
illegal by a political party that seemingly prides itself on the rule of
law.  We have spoken with my lawyers and
we are considering legal action over this inconsiderate action by the PDP and
its agents,’’ the statement said.
