While there was no party name or logo inscribed on the presidential campaign billboard, Legit.ng gathered that this might be a strong indication that the vice president might be contesting for presidency come 2023.
Sources have said that the vice president is strongly interested in contesting for the 2023 presidential election, although Osinbajo is yet to make that declaration public.
Recently, various support and pressure groups have continued to drum support for the vice president's possible ambition despite claims that the national leader of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, is also interested in the position.
