OAAN was formally known as OACAN-Outdoor Advertising Contractors Association of Nigeria, formed in 1964 with the primary objective of constituting a body to deal with the Government.
Today the association has grown in stature and expanded its scope beyond the single objective of meeting government on regulations that might be inimical to the growth and practice of the industry.
