Accord Party (AP) presidential flagbearer, Professor Christopher Imumolen has again urged Nigerians to endorse his candidature to demonstrate that they want a break from the ugly past of rudderless leadership. The youngest candidate believes the best way the people can point the way to a better future is for them to reject the old order and support a younger man with fresher ideas for a new era of all-round development.
Speaking to reporters after a rally, he said shunning the old breed of leaders, who have had nothing to offer despite decades of being at the helm, would revamp the nation.
“Nigerians have almost cried themselves hoarse for good leadership for so long now, without any respite,” Imumolen told newsmen.
“For so long, we have had leaders who cared more about themselves not the people; self-serving leaders who would rather line their pockets with the country’s common wealth, than work towards the collective good. We have had leaders who recycle themselves to such extent that the same leaders we knew while growing up are still struggling to remain relevant, even when it is obvious that they have passed their prime.
“But thank God that people like us have been given the grace to offer ourselves to Nigerians as ones better prepared to lead this country to the next level.
“Nigerians should carefully consider the options before them and choose those they know have the capacity and wherewithal to lead them out of this quagmire.
“I am well prepared to lead. In private capacity, I have been positively affecting lives and bringing succour to the depressed and underprivileged through self-sponsored initiatives, schemes and programmes that put smiles to millions of faces.
“I am in no doubt that I will do more if given the chance to be president of this great country,” Imumolen added.
