According to the Young Nigerians in Corporate World, Prof. Chris Imumolen of the Accord Party is the strongest contender vying to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023.
According to a statement made available on Wednesday by his campaign office, the YNCW President, Williams Emeka, said this while paying Prof. Chris a courtesy visit at his campaign office in Abuja.
Emeka emphasized that Imumolen was better qualified than other leading contenders for president and that the problems facing the nation went beyond “social media noise.”
He said, “At this current state that we are in this country, what we need is a president that understands how a sane system works. A president that knows his onions- What to create, what to correct, what to eradicate and then the result. What we have so far including Peter Obi are candidates who just make noise on social media.
“We have a collapsed educational system, our security zero, and many more that you and I know very well. But the purpose of this is not to count our many problems but rather to find solutions to all and the true solution to having a working system that would benefit all is no one else but Prof. Imumolen.”
Emeka gave Imumolen the reassurance that young Nigerians in the business sector are prepared to work for him and support him in elections because of his reputable background and his capacity for good performance in his private capacity.
“We have seen what you have done in your private capacity and in the education sector as well. These are the reasons why we have chosen to back you to become Nigeria’s President come 2023.
“We have our own future to look out for and we see that you are capable of protecting our future and charting a new course for our nation, particularly in the education sector which we believe if properly addressed, all other issues can be fixed.
“Again, we have decided to back Prof Chris because this is a man with an interest in human investment. His primary goal is to see everyone doing fine in a sane system where businesses are thriving and an average or low-class person can start up a business and it will blossom. This is me blowing his trumpet that he is capable of making our economy the best in Africa.”
Regardless of their ethnicity or religion, he also urged Nigerians to support Imumolen, whom he characterized as youthful, capable, and eager to serve Nigeria.
The Accord presidential contender advised the gathering to keep encouraging young people to vote in the upcoming election and to stop using social media.
“Let me guarantee you that ours is not a campaign of religion or tribe and as such, we are head hunting for the best to join me in rebuilding Nigeria and it is a task only the youth can do. These old men have less than 10 years to be with us, we must prove that we are capable and ready to lead this nation,” he noted.
