As Nigeria gears toward the 2023 general elections, the presidential candidate of Accord Party, Prof. Chris Imumolen, has stated that the country “as a matter of urgency requires an economic revival.”
Imumolen stated this while speaking as guest at the Glorious Life Pentecostal Church, Abeokuta, the Ogun state capital.
He said the economy and the power sector in the last seven years had been bastardised and, therefore, “requires a ‘talisman’ in his mould to revive it.”
“The power sector has been bastardised. The older generation and past leaders tried their best, but their best is not enough. So, chances should be given to the youth to direct the affairs of the Nation.
“God is raising men to become leaders of this country and I am willing to make myself available,” he said.
Imumolen also stressed the need to revive the education system of the country, saying that “an uneducated citizen population spells doom for the socio-economic development of the country.”
“Over 500,000 students have been given scholarships to high education through my foundation, and if elected we will declare a national emergency in the sector, in order to bring everyone on board.”
Meanwhile, the Ogun state chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Bishop Akin Akinsanya, in his remarks, urged the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to live up to its promise of conducting the best ever election.
Represented by the General Secretary, Rev. Adeyemi, the CAN leader lauded the contributions of Imumolen to national development, adding that the project Nigeria is for everyone irrespective of religious or party affiliation.
