Professor Chris Imumolen, the presidential candidate of the Accord Party, has said that Nigeria urgently needs an economic resurrection as it prepares for the general elections of 2023.
Imumolen made this statement while giving a speech as a guest at the Glorious Life Pentecostal Church in Abeokuta, the capital of Ogun state.
The presidential candidate for the Accord Party claimed that the economy and the power sector had been distorted over the previous seven years and needed a “talisman” in his image to restore it.
“The power industry has been corrupted. Although the older generation and previous leaders gave it their all, it was not enough. Young people should therefore be given the opportunity to oversee national matters.
He said, “God is raising men to lead this nation, and I’m willing to make myself available.”
Imumolen also emphasized the importance of reviving the nation’s educational system, adding that illiterate citizens spell doom for the socioeconomic advancement of the nation.
“My foundation has provided scholarships to almost 500,000 students for higher education, and if elected, we will declare a national emergency on the sector to get everyone on board.”
Bishop Akin Akinsanya, the chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) in Ogun state, urged the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to uphold its pledge to organize the finest election in his speech.
The CAN leader, who was represented by the General Secretary, Rev. Adeyemi, praised Imumolen for his efforts to national development and said that the project Nigeria is for everyone, regardless of religion or political allegiance.
