‘I will return Nigeria to the path of progress, peace’ – Ositelu
The Presidential candidate of Accord Party, Isaac Babatunde Ositelu has promised to rebuild Nigeria’s broken infrastructure if he emerges as president in the 2019 presidential election.
The renowned engineer who is set to kick-off his nationwide campaign this week revealed his four-pronged action plan to the media in Lagos on Sunday.
Ositelu highlighted that economic prosperity, security stability, social order, food security, potable water, affordable healthcare delivery and power to all nooks and crannies of Nigeria are his mandatory deliverables to all Nigerians.
The Accord Party flag bearer said that any government that focuses on solving the country’s energy crisis would have significantly addressed one of the major challenges facing Nigeria.
“We all appreciate the importance of power and how its availability can radically change our economy and life generally. But it is very unfortunate that this problem has refused to go, despite all the interventions, both by the previous governments and even the current one,” Ositelu told the media.
“However, we all know that at the center of this failure is leadership and capacity. Let me state once again that we are in this race to rebuild Nigeria and return her to the path of growth and development. We have what it takes to bring back those good old years of competence, excellence, development, respect for human life and dignity and hope.
“Outside power, we all know that other national infrastructures are in dire straits and nobody is doing anything to reverse this ugly situation that has remained for so long.
“On our honour, we promise to immediately commence this reconstruction of our great country from many years of brokenness that has left our people confused, skeptical and alienated. In the days ahead, we will unveil our blueprint. We are also going to be discussing our strategies with our teeming supporters who are already upbeat and expectant about a great future that we have promised.
With the presidential polls scheduled for February, Ositelu reiterated his commitment to embark on the door-to-door engagements with all stakeholders through neighbourhood interactions.
“We are confident of victory because the masses are with us. So, we are driving our campaign in agreement with long-suffering Nigerian citizens who are tired of promises that lead to nowhere,” he added.
“This is our chance and I know the people of Nigeria will cease this moment by coming out and voting massively for Accord Party for that future that we all desperately want.”
