2023: Accord Party Presidential Aspirant Speaks Ahead of Race

The presidential candidate of the Accord party, Professor Christopher Imumolen, has said a well-articulated strategy that would focus on mobilising Nigerians to buy into his transformation and change agenda is what he depends on to win next year’s presidential elections.

In response to inquiries in a recent interview about whether he had the foundation to win the top job in the country, the engineer said he preferred to quietly win over supporters to share his vision of a generational shift in how the country is run than to waste time canvassing for votes on social media.

“Let me say this,” he began while responding to posers. Next year’s elections will produce a few surprises because it is those who come into the race with a well-articulated strategy that would carry the day. I am a strategist, and I have been all my life.

“I have been planning this for 15 years through affecting people’s lives. I have been building my structure from the grassroots through empowerment programmes and mass mobilisation.

“If it were due to the noise one could make on social media, I would probably not have won the Accord party primaries.

“I know of candidates who made so much noise in the media but failed to get nominated for the positions they sought because they failed the acid test of putting sound strategies in place.

“As a matter of fact, I beat candidates who were more vociferous, more vocal than I was during our primaries.

“And I tell you. While they were busy making their noise, I was more concerned with how I’d get people to vote for me. Yes, my concern is to see how Nigerians will turn out in their numbers to vote for my party and me on election day.

“To do that, I must convince them that I am the man that has the answers to their problems as far as running Nigeria is concerned.

“As I speak, we are planning on how to get voters and agents to vote as well as represent us in all the 176,000 polling booths across the country on election day.

“Publicity is good. But not at the expense of real strategy to win the required votes to become the president of a country like Nigeria,” he added.
