Strong indications have emerged that 2019 presidential candidate, Engineer Isaac Babatunde Ositelu might be considering to contest the 2023 polls as his campaign posters were visible in the Niger Delta region.
Our correspondent in Bayelsa State on Monday confirmed posters and billboards of the politician who contested in the last presidential election under Accord Party.
Some of the posters sighted by our correspondent have inscriptions like: “Nigeria Will Rise Again”, “Ositelu Isaac Babatunde for president in 2023 elections,” and so on.
The campaign posters were sighted in Rivers, Delta and Bayelsa states respectively for over a week.
Though the politician is yet to declare his intention to contest the number one citizen position but sources told our correspondent that plans are afoot for him to announce to the world of contesting the presidential post.
It was also gathered that the politician may not contest under the Accord party as consultation is till ongoing .
Ositelu, had promised to rebuild Nigeria’s broken infrastructure if elected. Ositelu, an engineer with diverse local and international industry experience, also vowed to unite Nigerians regardless of tongue and creed in his 2019 campaigns.
He had described as selective, undemocratic, bias, subjective and unabashedly discriminative the decision of the National Election Debate Group (NEDG) to handpick only five out of the 98 presidential candidates in the 2019 presidential election for the presidential debate.
