APCON

The Advertising Practitioners Council of Nigeria (APCON) was established by the Advertising Practitioners Act No. 55 of 1988, as amended by Act No. 93 of 1992 and Act No. 116 of 1993 (now Advertising Practitioners Registration Act Cap A7 of 2004).

Mrs Ijedi Iyoha,
Ag. Registrar.

The adoption of a broad national mass communication policy by the National Council of Ministers in January 1988 was a milestone in the establishment of APCON. The various discussions that followed the adoption of the national mass communication policy articulated the relevance and the leadership role of advertising to the nation's social, political and economic development as well as the need for official recognition and regulation of the practice.

The Advertising Practitioners Council of Nigeria was subsequently established by the Act number 55 of 1988 as a logical outcome of these discussions. The Act accorded deserved state legislative recognition of advertising as a profession in Nigeria and vested APCON with powers to control and regulate practice of advertising in Nigeria, in all its aspects and ramifications.
